Jane takes care to design community projects with contributions from a wide range of abilities, ensuring everyone’s work has maximum effect. The artwork made in workshops can be for individual use or to create public art for special events.
Successful workshops need careful planning. Appropriate materials, health and safety, durability, attractiveness to recipient and effective use are all aspects of the decision process. Considering what to make and where to position art works takes time. Jane will help you plan your project timetable through to successful completion, including promotion and celebration event.
