Mentoring

This program allows you to draw on my experience of 36+ years of contemporary art practice. Whether it is designing and weaving traditional tapestry or experimenting with unusual materials and textile techniques. Through a series of 1 to1 discussions you will be able to examine all areas of your practice, from research through the design process to a final outcome. Highlighting your strengths and identify areas which you feel need to be addressed in order to develop your creative practice.

Working with a Mentor can help you engage with your developing practice and achieve your artistic goals.Whether you are starting out on the creative journey, a recent graduate or returning to your art practice this 1 to1 mentoring program can offer you tailored individual support.

I much prefer to work with people in person but some mentoring can be done on line via zoom.Creative review.
