Arts Participation

I have worked with many schools and community groups running both short and longer workshops. I specialise in teaching workshops on hand built ceramics and decoration. I also have experience teaching a variety of different art disciplines. I like to work with each group to design workshops to suit their needs. I am a member of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland Craft Education Panel.

I have detailed some of the projects that I have worked on below. If you would like anymore information please contact me.
