THINKING THROUGH MAKING
From mark making to collage, and from illustration to sculpture, my workshops offer a huge variety of ways to get hands-on experience and explore new skills. Learn from experience, get closer to materials and meet others in a creative environment.
With 5 years teaching experience, Elyse not only holds a PGCE with qualified teacher status and an enhanced DBS certificate, but has delivered creative workshops for Samsung and UK art colleges including Royal College of Art. Whilst allowing participants to explore her playful style, Elyse's mission is to use fashion illustration as a tool to discuss issues surrounding fashion consumerism and landfill waste.
After teaching Textiles in UK secondary schools, Elyse has experienced first hand the decline in student engagement with creative subjects; meaning many young people are not seeing the value of craft and design, learning practical skills, or being informed about industry waste. This lack of value for materials and making has also been influenced by the introduction of the E-Baccalaureate performance measure.
Through organisations that promote sustainable and circular design, galleries and independent means, Elyse wants to integrate workshops that allow young people to think through making and encourage positive change for the future.
