Shroud Making Workshops.
I am currently in a process of developing workshops where you can design and make a shroud for yourself or your loved one here in Brighton but it is often possible for me to travel to you. Making your own shroud is a stimulating and life-enhancing experience, regardless of how far you may be from the end of your life. Getting together and making a shroud for a person you love helps with processing grief and anticipation of your own death. Please contact me for more details.
Art Workshops easing conversation about death and dying.
Together with my friend and colleague, photographer and filmmaker Wendy Pye, I have co-founded Luna Arts– an art organisation that specialises in art workshops and events for well-being. Wendy is also a co-founder of Soul Films , an organisation that makes films about the life of someone who has died or is near dying. Together, we facilitate workshops where creativity is used to ease conversation about death and dying.
I have been teaching Art and Design for over 20 years and offer workshops to individuals and groups. I work as a sessional lecturer on the UAL credited Foundation Course in Art and Design at the Brighton Metropolitan College and a Visiting Lecturer on BA and MA courses in the UK and abroad. I have experience in pastoral care as a Course Leader on Adult Foundation Course and I also facilitate art workshops for schools and adults at Hastings Contemporary and Phoenix Art Space. I hold a PGCSE in Art and Design. Please check News on upcoming workshops and art classes.
