Keep an eye our for my


I will be launching a workshop programme in 2023.  If you would like to be kept up to date with dates and venues please sign up to my newsletter.  I promise that your information will not be released to any third parties and I will not bombard you with sales emails!

Workshops will be a minimum of one day and some will be over two days.  Initially they are likely to be in the North East of England.  However, if you are further afield and would be interested in a workshop in your area and know of a suitable venue please do get in touch.  I travel well and love to meet new people and discover new places.
