Her recent workshops have included Print and Bookbinding, a fun and simple morning workshop exploring layers of colour and direct mark making.

The afternoon was spent stitching, gluing and folding, with lots of goodies to take away at the end of the day.

The glass and silk screen printing weekend worked with glass artists from around the country and local participants from the region.
