Training and Mentoring

I currently offer the workshops and training listed here as well as being able to deliver bespoke versions for your setting and needs. I am also available for online and in person talks around any of these subjects. Get in touch at to enquire about potential workshops, rates and availability.

I also offer one to one mentoring for artists and other practitioners in the arts and play space. This is a highly bespoke service and can look like a lot of different things but areas I can work with you on include participatory practice and process, making your practice accessible and inclusive for neurodivergent and/or disabled participants, incorporating play into your practice and developing sustainable and enjoyable practices as a neurodivergent artist.

I offer free training to Black and/or POC led organisations. Please feel get in touch if this is something your interested in. And, if your reading this and wondering why read more here.
