Workshops and courses

I've carried out workshops delivering to a diverse range of needs and ages, from Primary school children, to Dementia patients, and advanced glass students. These have been held within my own workshop, schools, hospital wards, outpatients and play areas, one on one with chemo and dialysis patients, and in community groups with mental health issues.

Most photos can't be published on the website but do contact me for more details at natasharampley@hotmail.com

I used wood, fused glass, pebbles, stones and different textured tiles to make a sensory mosaic based on patients memories of Weston Supermare. This had to be made on a curved board for an internal curved wall in the new unit.

This was made with children over several workshops to put into the plastercast treatment area of the Royal Hospital. No one could have more broken bones than this character!
