I am a professional tutor with extensive experience in secondary and further education and a practising artist and sculptor (1st class BA hons).

I guide the complete beginner through a variety of basic techniques whilst more experienced artists are supported in the development of their own projects. I encourage you to develop your own style and interests. We work from a variety of subjects including still life, figure, portrait, animals and landscape. I regularly teach new techniques and introduce you to the work of different artists and potters. 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. Dates for 2019 – 20:                            

Autumn term is Monday 16 September – Friday 18 October, with a three-week break and continues from Monday 11 November – Friday 13 December.
