I love opening people’s eyes to the exciting possibilities of design and craft. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience, enabling people to discover the joy of making.
I work with adults, young people and children, people with learning difficulties and people with chronic pain.
I can tailor workshops to specific groups such as corporate well-being events, staff development and pre-wedding gatherings. Get in touch to discuss what you’d like.
My workshops are designed to be both enjoyable and therapeutic. A space where learning new skills and building on existing ones will bring inspiration, a sense of achievement, creative conversations and most importantly some fun – all elements that are so important for well-being. I pay special attention to the effective use of tools to accomplish a high standard of finish. My aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere, where people can escape their everyday challenges and immerse themselves in a creative process.
I devise and deliver workshops in the following:
• Paper sculpting • Wirework • Machine Embroidery • Animation • Collage • Mood-boards • Craft • Garment & Soft Furnishing Repair •
I’ve received glowing feedback from students over the years and am delighted to be able to have such a positive impact.
“I found the Paper Sculpture course highly enjoyable and engaging, the content and delivery were excellent. It certainly exceeded my expectations of what I could achieve as a novice and Dan expertly lead us through the steps required to gain confidence in this fascinating craft. There were extension options at each stage for those more experienced attendees which ensured that everyone’s ability was catered for. Can highly recommend.”
