I run workshops on themes of peace, spirit, and forgiveness. These can involve making conceptual art, food, flameworking with a tea light, and other forms. I have given workshops to groups of asylum seekers, veterans, the elderly with dementia and their carers, clergy, school groups as young as seven years old, and the general public. Previous clients include veteran groups Glen Art and Forward Assist, FODI (Friends of the Drop-In Centre, Sunderland Asylum Seekers), Chichester Cathedral, West Dean College, Dorchester Abbey, Dementia group The Essenec Centre, Sunderland, England.
I have also run workshops on making musical instruments from trash for rappers and MCs who were part of Next Gen at Midland Art Centre in Birmingham.
Lecturing & Talks
I lecture on crowdfunding internationally. I have also given talks about my own practice for diverse groups including Craft Net, sponsored by the Craft Council, The European Commission, The Royal Scottish Academy, several symposia organised by the Institute for International Research in Glass, and academic institutions in Britain and the United States.
Previously I was Chair, and Exhibitions Office of the Scottish Glass Society, and within both of these roles I curated or co-curated juried exhibitions in the Perth Museum and Art Gallery, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, The Thurso Gallery, and The St. Fergus Gallery (Wick), and the Iona Gallery (Kingussie).
