Outreach projects

I've been working on the outreach programme with Birkenhead Art,The Williamson Art Gallery, Wirral Methodist housing and the friends of the Williamson and various sponsors like Big Lottery Fund and the Arts Council England over the last few years. The outrecah programme gives artists the chance to work outdoors with the community on half day themed workshops working with children of all ages on a project that they have prepared based on that years theme.


The annual exhibition of the young peoples work is held each September to celebrate their achievements.

2018 Viking Artefacts

We looked at the theme ‘making your mark’ by looking at how Vikings made their mark on the Wirral. We explored the idea of treasures yet to be found and created imaginary Viking artefacts that could still be buried and treasure maps to lead the way to them.


We created cardboard collagraph coins to print from, we recycled boxes by decorating them to create treasure chests and we designed are own treasure maps.
