CREATING OBJECTS THAT CONNECT PLACE, HISTORY AND IDENTITY
I make small often intricate objects that are based on the place where they are situated. I am interested in the history of a place and what used to be there in the past including interesting stories and facts. This often leads to the creation of a trail of objects that help people to understand more about the place they are in.
I also use the place or location in a different way,. Through workshops I encourage people to use the surrounding environment in the making process and to feature in the work produced. I also believe in the benefits of making for everyone both in learning new skills, encouraging creativity and helping with mental wellbeing.
My work also involves taking making out onto the streets, so everyone no matter what they do, or where they live, can connect with the benefits that making has to offer.
