Tutor: Jenny Smith or Fern Busutill
I am a woodworker and maker who enjoys creating, fixing, salvaging and reusing all kinds of useful and decorative things.
I have a background in working with young people and people with support needs, and have run many creative and practical workshops for both children and adults. I am interested in how working with your hands and the imaginative process of transforming materials can be personally empowering and benefit overall wellbeing. I teach beginners Woodwork and Upholstery, which offer a grounding in basic skills for traditional furniture making techniques, focusing on the use of hand tools.
