Talks and Events February and March 2018

I have a sudden flurry of talks, events, training and other activities coming up in the next few weeks, starting with a talk about my work at the lovely  Atelier Stroud on 24th February, 2.30pm. Details and booking here.


On Monday 26th February I am taking part in Process, part of DMU Cultural Exchanges programme with a workshop about my genetics residency project with Gillian McFarland and Professor Turi King. This is a FREE event at De Montfort University and will include the chance to extract DNA and make a creative petri dish.  Find out more and book here.

I’m sharing my project development and funding experience as well as launching a new Pain-Free Project Planning toolkit at Craftspace’s Made in the Middle Pathways to Making II Symposium on 9th March.

For Leicestershire artists and makers there’s a free workshop on funding your creative practice on Monday 12th March.

And later on Thurs 15th March 6-7pm I’ll be giving a FREE short talk about Criminal Quilts before a film show with Unseen Cinema (film has a charge, talk doesn’t).


I am also giving talks to students and graduates of De Montfort University, Loughborough University and Wolverhampton university in the next few weeks. I am always happy to talk to university course leaders and enterprise teams about delivering professional development sessions.

Daily Make (8 & 9)

Owing to a foul illness over the last week or so, recent daily makes have just been knitting and more knitting. Both the scarf and the illness are done now, I’m pleased to say.

These #dailymake2015s also overlap with an artist in residence day so proper making has taken place too.
