About me (workshop provider)

I work in a lovely local primary school. I really enjoy interacting with children. I am so thrilled that I was granted funding, which has enabled me to set up workshops, which I hope, will guide children towards being creative in their everyday lives.

I love anything to do with art and creativity. I try to do a creative activity every day.

A massive thank you to everyone in the council who has worked hard to distribute the Welsh Government grant funding, to enable children to learn new skills in a fun way.

If you have a friend, who you think may be interested in our workshop, please share this page with them and spread the news.

Hope to see you soon!
