I really enjoy running printmaking workshops for all children from primary school age upwards. I have an MA in Arts Education, over 12 years experience teaching art, design and textiles in school and I have fully enhanced DBS. I am happy to work with large or smaller groups and I can develop a project to suit your chosen theme or topic. Below are some photos of recent work in schools and some testimonials from teachers. You can click here to read about my recent visit to a school in Munich as a visiting artist.

Urban Wallpaper Project Huddersfield College for WYPW (West Yorkshire Print Workshop)
The Urban Wallpaper Project had quite an open brief – to reflect the students life and experiences – in some senses as a college teacher this can be a bit worrying, as we are often very tied to tight stricture and content, but we decided to give ourselves fully over to the work with Sam to allow the students to experience this without our interference. There was a period of ‘trying things out’ in inks which generated some layered imagery – but then some grouping decisions were made, very sensitively by Sam, making suggestions on subject nature and colour and with student input – these would influence the collaborative group that would work on each individual wallpaper length.
