Special Needs

I have the most wonderful time feltmaking with children and adults with special needs or learning disabilities. I get an immense sense of satisfaction working out how I can adapt techniques to facilitate the group, particularly the harder to reach or the PLMD children. It is wonderful ensuring everyone can contribute to or make a product they are happy with and can be proud of.

Some projects have included individual pieces of art work as well as some large scale collaborative felt works for the most amazing displays. Recently I have returned to work with the Enterprise Group at Breakspear School to produce a line of gifts that they could give to overseas visitors during an international visit as well as develop a range of products to sell to raise funds for the school.

"Your visit prior to the workshop really clarified the process and allowed us to see which activities would be most suited to student’s individual needs. We have really diverse needs and I was really impressed with how you enabled them all to have access to the activities. Our finished piece was very impressive, we are very proud
of it.
