About the tutor

Her work has been displayed at the Northampton Art Gallery and Royal Cornwall Museum and has had many jewellery projects published in magazines in the UK and Australia.
We understand that for some learners, the only way they will be able to take part in Adult Education is if they receive financial help and support, for example a contribution towards the costs of tuition, exam fees, travel, books or childcare. The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and the funding agency for Advanced Learning Loans have allocated some money to help us provide this support. Please contact your local centre for information and advice about eligibility and how to apply.
