Various Workshops

My art practice has always involved public engagement. Sometimes creative sessions have led to art work for exhibitions. Some of these projects are featured elsewhere on my website too.

Short sessions with Norfolk Young Carers depicting their hopes and fears for Norwich Good Economy led to animations and stills for events at Norwich Forum in 2022.

Vegetable and garden scenes were made at our Edible East ten day extravaganza fillling the whole of the Forum for  the ten days of Norfolk Heritage Open Days with the theme of 'Edible England', funded by Arts Council England.

Art of the Gut was my Arts Council Grant funded residency at the Quadram Institute on Norwich Research Park in 2019. I ran workshops with Deaf and hearing children at Colmans primary school, St Williams Way Library, Castle Quarter shopping centre and an interactive installed  at Norwich Science Festival. The work explored gut microbes, diet and health and sessions were run with scientists and Science Art and Writing. I employed local artists Rach Anstey Sanders,Chris Jackson and drama facilitator Hilary Thompson  to collaborate with me.

Firsite Gallery Colchester commissioned me to make art about Britishness with a local primary school.  We created a tile game and an installation.

Great Exhibition Road Festival online workshop about gut microbes during lockdown and our Edible East Future of Food Art Science Trail workshops with Norwich Science Festival and the Quadram Institute in 2021, with British Sign Language interpretation.

Making and Shadow theatre workshops, making traingular forms for fingers in response to the Frink animal sculptures for the Sainabury Centre of Visual Art, Norwich with British Sign Language for the Whitechapel Gallery, London 2017 and 2018.
