My workshops all have an emphasis on issues as simple solutions, sustainability and spirituality. Sessions explore relationships between art, craft, the individual and the environment.

I run workshops from my home studio in Aarhus. Taught in small groups, these sessions provide lots of opportunity for questions, creative conversations and a playful exchange during the day.

All courses are more or less based on concepts of mixed media. An introduction to basic principles,  techniques, tools and materials invites you to create simple and unique images, collages, journals, books and book objects (or whatever is the subject at the actual workshop). Introductions to some of my favorite artists in the area usually follows. Individual supervision.

I also deliver workshops and talks in schools, colleges, for beginners, professional artists and teachers. Please contact me for more details.
