Community Connections

I am passionate about giving back to the community and providing low-cost or free opportunities where possible. I deliver many funded projects and workshops within the community, this enables places on the sessions to be free of charge or a 'pay what you can' arrangement. Below are just a few examples of my previous community workshops and courses. If you have received funding and are interested in a workshop with your local community group please get in touch.
