Accessible Art Workshops

As an Occupational Therapist I have worked with babies, children and teenagers with many conditions such as cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, coordination disorder, sensory processing difficulties, chromosome disorders etc.

I have a detailed awareness of how the use of art can facilitate confidence, encourage stretching out stiff limbs, help to desensitise sensory sensitivities and the sheer enjoyment experienced when doing art.

My workshops can be tailor made considering the needs of the individuals taking part, and any individual therapy goals, personal goals, or interests they have.

I am developing the glass arts initiative at Chopsticks (North Yorkshire) Ltd and currently facilitate a weekly arts and craft group at Chopsticks (North Yorkshire) Ltd for adults with learning disabilities.
