Some things people have said about my work - thanks to all!
"The children thoroughly enjoyed them, as did the adults! You are an excellent facilitator, and I really appreciated the way you adapted the sessions to fit the changing mood of the group and to their interests and abilities throughout the day. You were able to harness their energy into productivity, and I believe that the children came away having had fun, made friends and learnt about Respect and communication - which were the objectives! They were able to tap into their creativity, guided by you. You have a beautiful, strong yet gentle spirit, and this was evident throughout the sessions and in how you interacted with the children. I have to say you have an impressive amount of energy!" - Becca Adshead, REC Senior Children & Family Worker, on "Art Workshop for Children."
"The ripples from the actual shared events in the workshop, spread throughout my mind and soul in powerful ways." - Chris, Art student, about"Art & Social Change" workshop
