I am able to organise and facilitate workshops using collage and DIY zine making for young – older adults. I can prepare sessions for booked groups and drop in audience members and am happy to work flexibly to deliver workshops that are right for your audience. I am trained in safeguarding and have a recent DBS certificate.
As part of a residency in July 2018 I facilitated two collage workshops. In this introductory workshop, each participant was challenged to create a collage using 5 images provided in 5 minutes, 10 images in 10 minutes and 20 in 20 minutes. Finally, the participants were asked to create a collage using images they picked out at random from the boxes of images provided. The aim of the workshop was to discuss the ideas of fate and research when engaging in projects.

In 2017 I worked with Manchester Museum’s Volunteers to make a zine that helped them describe what volunteering meant to them. Each participant was asked to create a double spread each using cut ups of museum photographs and text which would be culminated together to create a zine for the museum to display to the public in its study space.
TATE commissioned myself and Artists Hannah Kemp-Welch, Sally Noall and Rachel Noel to create a workshop for their Uniqlo TATE Late event in 2017. We invited young people to rewrite the news through a series of 4 collaging steps and created a collaborative newspaper showing the ‘New News’ that represented the stories the participants wanted to tell.
