Jacqui began teaching children in 2002 at Great Western Studios. By 2004 she was teaching small groups of 4 to 5 children from her home studio. With the help of her gentle approach and passion for the arts and crafts, her young students aged between 4 and 16 years developed an enthusiasm for making. The majority of Jacqui's teaching is with clay but she regularly includes wax, metal and drawing lessons.
These classes enable the children to express themselves while thinking about design and technique, building confidence and pride by producing beautiful work.
Jacqui also runs a limited number of adult workshops during the year.
