Talks & Workshops

Talks

My preferred format is a short talk of about 20 minutes followed by the opportunity to craft with a few stalks of corn.

Talks are tailored to your group.
For example:- 
A gardening club with an interest in plants may like to learn about growing corn, and about the traditions associated with corn harvests, before trying their hand at some simple marquetry with corn stalks.
A WI group may prefer a more general talk perhaps touching on the plaiting industry, straw fashion, hat making, skekling or corn dollies before being invited to produce attractive plaited hearts to decorate the home.
It is appreciate that some groups may just prefer to listen and handle straw objects. This can be catered for.

Workshops

Workshops are available as part of a talk or in their own right. All sizes of groups and ages of groups can be catered for. Prices vary according to the number of participants in the group, requirement and location.

Options:- 
Register an interest in learning a particular skill or creating a specific item at a workshop and I will try to arrange one. Past workshops include, hearts, Christmas crooks, the art of spirals, traditional dollies. 
Alternatively, get a small group of friends together and employ me to teach you.  
I am also happy to be invited to work with children during arts days or other extra curricular activities as I am a qualified, part time, practicing teacher with an enhanced DBS.
