I teach pottery in schools, community groups with Home Educated families and charities across Milton Keynes and beyond.
The aim is to use pottery as art therapy and as a fun, enjoyable learning tool to engage people in constructive activity. To bring people together through the art form of clay and help improve their daily lives. I've worked with Macintyre, Women & Work, Re-Think, Assisted Living Homes, Great Linford Primary School, Christ The Sower School, Maulden School, St Andrews School, special schools and local Children & Family Centres. My aspiration is to link harder to reach communities with the arts sector and enable a broader range of people to access art courses and workshops.
Christ The Sower School Flower Project
I recently worked with a class of year 6 children making a series of ceramic flowers to represent their life journey.
Westoning Primary School
I worked with the children to create a welcome sign for the front of their school. The children made all the letters and glazed the pieces to create a permanent and welcoming sign.
RAF Benson Primary School
To commemorate the centenary of the RAF in 2018 worked with the entire Primary school from Raf Benson to create over 100 ceramic Spitfires for the children to take home as a keepsake.
