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.

“The whole wirework course was amazing with a lovely patient teacher and an opportunity to learn and practice and learn from each other too. It was very well run… Dan, thank you for a lovely three weeks… I didn’t think I was creative at all but I’m really excited now I’ve found something I can do! Felt proud of my achievement. I have learnt so much and have been inspired to create more!”
