Events, Exhibitions and Workshops

I’m looking forward to giving a talk online for the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design on 16th February at 6 pm GMT tickets here.

The talk will be about my solo exhibition last year at Ruthin Craft Centre and the stories, meaning and process behind the selected works shown there.
