Over the last few years I have been involved with lots of schools, arts centres, festivals and other creative workshops.

The work has mainly been with primary school children, but not always. The age group 5-11 are the most responsive to constructive 'hands-on' workshops and the educational concerts are very well received too. I have also worked with teenagers and adults, and special needs children. Making musical instruments from all sorts of everyday materials and plumbing is the most popular, but equally successful workshops are making wind chimes,
or willow and rush fish, or North American dream catchers, or snow globes or games.

The list below is only the more recent events that I can remember with confidence, there are plenty of others pre 2003.
