May Newsletter

Welcome back, 
There has been a lot going on behind the scenes for me during the past couple of months. I have been developing new workshop ideas and working towards my Sala exhibition in August.
I will be running a series of workshops in August at Mclaren Unvaled, 122 Main Rd, Mclaren Vale. This will be in conjunction with my ‘Time and Tide’ exhibition which will be on display for the whole month of August. The exhibition will comprise of a variety of clocks, and also sea themed glass, mosaics and other items.

Workshop Information
The workshops are following a theme that is focused on low cost creative activities which result in useful items, but also extend peoples skills and imagination. This follows on from my belief that art is for everyone, we can all produce something that is creative and artistic. Art also brings a richness to our lives and can reduce stress, improve focus and problem solving skills and keeps our brains active. 
Follow the links below to find out more or book the workshops. Extra information is also available in the News tab where I have written some blog. While you are there have a look at the Store as I am always adding new items.
