Working with communities & Artist Identity

I conduct workshops in community settings and faciliate art project groups for making together and fostering an artist identity. I’ve worked with charities, schools, galleries, community groups, gardens and the NHS. I’ve enjoyed working with children from age 6, to older adults  in a range of settings and using many mediums including zine making, animation, installation & wearable sculpture.

I also work in outdoor settings with art materials and make experiences to communicate ecological themes.  I collaborated with a mix of scientists, activists and ecologically minded people to present A Life in Plastic at ASCUS Labs in Edinburgh during Fringe Festival.  We created an immersive Arts and Science experience combining sound, video and microscopic art in the ASCUS lab. We also constructed an interactive public sculpture in the Summerhall courtyard on the theme of plastic in relation to geological time.
