This spring, I’ll be running a charcoal sketching walk & draw session at Burgh Castle with a Broads Authority guide. The session on Friday 11th May at 10:30am-12:30pm, will creatively explore the Roman ruins and take inspiration from the surrounding landscape of Breydon Waters. The session is delivered as part of Waveney & Blyth Arts’ programme of workshops and ‘Water, Mills & Marshes: The Broads Landscape Partnership’ (Broads Authority). Plus, the walk will also be part of the Broads Outdoors Festival taking place from 28th April-13th May.

Makers Month, The Forum Norwich. 13th and 15th March

I can’t wait to take part in my first Makers Month in March! I’ll be running two textile arts workshops – a drop-in to create protest banners and a bookable workshop to create an applique patch about ‘YOU’! The free drop-in session on Tuesday 13th March takes inspiration from the Craftivism movement to take a gentle, accessible approach to protest. For the bookable session on Thursday 15th March, take inspiration from passions in your own life, to create a unique textile art patch. To find out more info, visit the Makers Month project page.

Create by the Coast, session 3 of 3, 26th August

The last session of Create by the Coast was a special and imaginative day. We found a lovely spot amongst the trees on the grounds of Great Yarmouth Minster, Norfolk. First, we had a go at monoprinting – using found objects (such as leaves, daisys, feathers, etc) and doing drawings onto ink plates of the Minster and the surroundings. Then, we made creative things with found objects around the grounds. We created fairy huts, nests and nature mandalas. These items will be in the grounds until 9th September.

Plus, the project exhibition will be at Great Yarmouth Library, Norfolk from 4th to 9th September. It’ll be open to daily to all, including the informal evening showing with refreshments on Wednesday 6th September from 5pm to 7:30pm. Thank you to Norfolk County Council’s Arts Project Fund for supporting the project and exhibition.
