I am a professional tutor with extensive experience in secondary and further education. I am also a practising artist and sculptor (First class BA hons).

I guide the complete beginner, step by step, through a variety of basic techniques whilst more experienced artists are supported in the development of their own projects. I will encourage you to develop your own style and interests. We work from a variety of subjects including still life, the figure, portrait, animals and landscape. I regularly teach you new techniques and introduce you to the work of different artists and potters as a source of inspiration. Students have the opportunity to regularly exhibit their work.

It’s a great way for you to learn new skills and make new friends in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Class numbers are kept low to maintain a high standard of tuition.

The course runs over three terms 10 week terms a year. This term starts on Monday 8 January 2018 until Friday 9 February with a break of one to two weeks, running again from Friday 23 February to Tuesday 27 March.

You can join a class at any point in the year; if you are unable to come to a session you are welcome to swap sessions that week or come along to two sessions on another week to catch up.

The Summer term starts on Monday 23 April to Friday 25 May, with a two week break, starting again from Monday 11 June till Monday 16 July. Please note the classes on 7 May (bank holiday) will be deferred until 16 July.
