Whether you're a seasoned artist or just starting out, these workshops are designed to inspire and empower you to push your creative boundaries. Unleash your creativity and discover the endless possibilities these versatile materials offer. Join me to dive into the boundless world of wire and plastics. Under my guidance you'll have the opportunity to experiment with techniques that range from delicate jewellery making to crafting large-scale sculptures, hangings or framed pieces. Embrace the freedom to blend your own ideas with innovative methods, resulting in captivating and original creations. Wire's malleability lends itself to crafting pieces that exude both delicate elegance and bold strength.
