Teaching at HE
I am a regular visiting lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, where I work with 3rd year BA Decorative Arts students with writing and communication skills in the run up to their final assessments and degree show. I have taught 3rd year BA Furniture Design & Make students at Rycotewood Furniture in Oxford, working on their press and publicity texts. I have taught a series of writing workshops for MA students at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham, preparing them for their MA dissertations.
I thoroughly enjoy working with students and, as a recent graduate of a making course myself, I understand the pressures students are under, as well as the challenges they will face on graduation. Writing and communication skills – how they understand and talk about the work they make – are vital for their continued success.
I have many workshops, talks and exercises that I can tailor to the needs of your course (particularly to a professional practice module) so please get in touch to discuss possibilities for your students.
