ABOUT


I am a mother of two wonderfully creative children with boundless energy. Their thirst for knowledge and enthusiasm for creativity has encouraged me to set up Dot Kids; workshops and classes for children which encourage creative confidence, contextual awareness and a love of the Arts.

My own background is in art and photography, having studied at the London School of Printing. I have worked for many years in the Education & Multimedia Unit at the British Museum, producing educational facilities for schools. I am fully CRB/DBS checked and hold an Enhanced Certificate. 

We are currently running workshops during the school holidays and after school, in Whitstable Kent . We will shortly be introducing Home Ed sessions during the daytime. Many more workshops will be added very soon; including animation, print making, digital sound composition, poetry and clay sculpture.

We hope to open workshops in Faversham, Canterbury, Margate & Herne Bay very soon.
