Associate Educators

In addition to the diverse range of artists that stem from our artistic programme, we have a select pool of artists who more regularly deliver our education programme.

Our Associate Educators are all artists experienced in working with schools, with active DBS checks. They each have their own specialisms and areas of interest through which they are able to develop bespoke workshops for your needs.

If you are interested in working with any of our Associate Educators or have ideas of your own please contact:

Clare AbbattClare Abbatt
Sculpture + Landscape

Clare is an artist who specialises in sculpture and figurative work as well as working to commission. Clare’s workshops place hands-on making in the context of art history, producing unexpected tangents, memorably and enjoyably shifting preconceptions.

 
 
 
 
Louise ClarkeLouise Clarke
Drawing + Discovering

Louise is an artist and curator who embraces a range of media to produce a variety of installation based outcomes, championing the role of drawing as a way of thinking, working and analysing. Hands-on workshops with Louise are as likely to involve plaster casting, projections, and printmaking as they are drawing with ink, tape, and torches. Her past workshops have even included working with live owls, dead fish, and dressing up.

Abject Objects

Sophie is an artist who makes interactive artworks and performances often using mundane and domestic materials to reveal forgotten histories and beauty. Workshops with Sophie frequently involve making multiples and absurd experiments. Sophie is also one of our Education Coordinators.

Installation + Impermanence

Emma is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work ranges from drawing and painting to performance and installation. Emma specialises in sustainable practices, in particular re-using paper based materials. Workshops with Emma explore scale, colour and tone to create emotional and visually impactful experiences.

Nita NathwaniNita Nathwani
Ceramics + Construction

Nita is a ceramic artist who explores different processes and ways of making with clay. Her work often refers to movement and construction – both in terms of the making process and to architecture. Her workshops are about constructing large works from small, mapping body movement into clay, clay animation or easily accessible firing techniques. Nita is also one of our Education Coordinators.

 
 
Sam ReadSam Read
Space + Symbols

Sam’s workshops take inspiration from written language (typography) and place (topography). With playful and vibrant visuals he brings “serious” disciplines like graphic design and architecture down to earth. This frequently has a digital focus and is done with a combination of model-making and drawing.
