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 hen / stag parties. 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’ve received glowing feedback from students over the years and am delighted to be able to have such a positive impact.
I devise and deliver workshops in the following:
• Paper sculpting • Wirework • Machine Embroidery • Animation • Collage • Mood-boards • Craft • Garment & Soft Furnishing Repair •
Dan’s paper sculpting workshop was a relaxing and rewarding way to spend a Saturday! I started with no experience of paper sculpting and finished with a piece that I can mount in a frame. Dan was very warm and patient and gave very clear instructions, making the whole process very enjoyable. I look forward booking another workshop soon.
