Our Tutors

Our team of tutors are practicing artists. They are inspirational tutors because they are inspirational artists. So what they share with you is rooted in their own vibrant creative work. The teaching style and subject emerges from their personal passions and interests.

All our artist tutors have an enthusiasm to share their knowledge and experience with you. Some have taught regularly here for many years, others are exciting new members of our teaching community. All share the ethos of the School “to develop individual skills and practice” in anyone with an interest in creativity whatever their background or experience.

We provide a nurturing environment that will also challenge you to get the most out of your time with us. Tutors structure your day with demonstrations, observation and experimentation, both with the group and one to one. Tuition tailored to the class and adapted for each individual means everyone gets a chance to develop their own personal approach.

Due to the nature of printmaking, the courses I run are for relatively small groups. This allows for a high level of support so I can tailor the processes to suit individual artists’ ideas. I am very hands on, teaching through demonstrations, but within this structure, encourage students’ freedom in the way they apply these techniques to their own practice. I’m dynamic in my teaching methods and always have lots of fun. I find it incredibly exciting and enjoy the adventure of such a productive and creative environment.
