I have been teaching workshops for over ten years, within the community, at private venues and in my own workspace and studio. I am happy to travel around the region to teach at community groups, arts for wellbeing groups, schools and speciality projects. I can help to write arts proposals for funding applications. Please contact me for information. (see ‘contact me’ page).

- Private tuition – individual or small groups
- Invited tutor for community – 2018 Solway Coastwise project and Mull of Galloway Lighthouse Trust
- Schools – specific projects to fit with curriculum

- Specialist projects – Kirkudbright Arts and Crafts Trail
- Arts and crafts groups – teaching new skills
- Mental health projects – themed and focussed on wellbeing
