Creative engagement art participation and community projects offer a fantastic opportunities for doing something together .
Alongside my passion for creating with willow I also create and sell my own art work and some of this quite naturally spills over to working with others.
It is so easy to think of art as something that as a solitary activity.
Working with others on a shared art project is a totally different way of working , it takes you out of your comfort zone, and brings so many benefits , the old saying that we can achieve so much more when we work together than we can on our own definitely applies .
Working together also has the added bonus of providing a safe environment that can enable us to overcome our differences, minor issues can fizzle away when your having fun .
I have been involved in the creation and delivery of many long term projects.Examples of the types of activity that I can work with you on include.
- Willow lantern events
- Murals and large scale art collaborations.
- Large scale sculpture activities including giant masks and characters.
- Cane and willow sculpture work .
- Large scale environmental art activities linked to using natural and recycled materials.
- Planning events which include training exercises.
The activities can be tailored to meet a variety of different audiences irrespective of age , ability and background as well as be adapted to work in many different environments including festivals and celebration events, community based projects as well as small group projects and activities linked to learning environments.
I am always happy to be set a challenge and to explore any new ideas for projects.
