In the past 5 years I have been organising and planning learning activities oriented towards school-age children and toddlers in a museum setting, which included art & craft events and storytelling sessions. Currently available for visits, talks and workshops - both online and in person - and for a variety of age groups.

Choose your favourite animal and imagine its wild escape to a habitat rich in life. Does your wildlife hero run, swim, crawl or fly?

This workshop was part of The Wild Escape, a major new project led by Art Fund uniting hundreds of museums with schools and families in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity. The pictures and stories children create will be brought together in a collective work of art that imagines a better future for the wildlife on our doorstep, launched online and in venues across the UK on Earth Day 2023.
Horniman Museum and Gardens
In November 2022 I was appointed by the Horniman Museum & Gardens to design and facilitate two workshops for their "Museum Clubs", a 10 weeks after school club, for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Together we created a climate pledge board, posters and signages to encourage school groups, who regularly visit the museum Education Centre, to responsibly recycle.
Climate Pledge Board designed with Athelney Primary School.
