My extensive experience of delivering workshops in primary and secondary education settings has given me a huge portfolio of successful projects. Sessions can be tailored to encompass a current curriculum topic or to produce a piece of work to be permanently displayed in school. Depending on what is required, activities can involve the whole school or just a selection of pupils. Get in touch with any queries and to discuss your requirements.
Clay is an extremely tactile material and has proved perfect for sensory sessions in care homes. Residents have found immense satisfaction and pride in creating something as simple as a clay tile with impressions, textures and patterns. These sessions are always so rewarding for everyone involved.
Art is well known as a medium of therapy. I have experience of working with hospital out patients as well as those within the wards; ranging from mild to acute depression sufferers.
Short term weekly clay sessions for women's community support groups have provided valuable self confidence boosts for attendees.
I hold a current DBS certificate and references available on request.

“Victoria produced the outstandingly beautiful and thought provoking pilgrimage tiles that are on display in St Giles' Church, Wrexham. This was a large project involving work with children and young people as well as engaging adults.
It was delivered on time and within the budget boundaries."
