One of Tracy’s sessions participating in a Wooden Sign Craft Activity at Butlins
I am a fully qualified Adult Educational tutor who has taught classes at various colleges in Lancashire for eight years teaching a wide range of Art and Craft topics such as:
Book folding, Fabric painting on tote bags, Silk painting, Paper-crafting, Wood crafting projects, Decopatch, Card making using techniques such as: Spirelli, Small Fabric crafts, Fabric/felt Brooches, Decoupage, Iris folding, Tea-Bag folding, Memory Books, Gift box making, Many Themed Crafts for Easter, Summer, Christmas, Nautical/cruise themed relevant to the countries to be visited, Scrapbooking, Paper Flowers, Faberge Eggs, and many more topics to name to many diverse groups.
I currently manage and deliver many art and craft sessions for a small community interest company but I am looking for a new challenge that is rewarding, and I believe that I can cruise, travel to many amazing places, craft and inspire people to have a ‘life-long love of learning’ by teaching them the basic skills and techniques required using various mediums to create a unique piece of art using their own creativity in their own individual style whilst having a fun rewarding experience.
The skills and techniques learnt in the sessions will help all participants gain confidence, share ideas and learn about a new topic whilst meeting new friends engaging in these fun yet structured meaningful activities that promote a sense of well-being through achievement.
I am very passionate about the work that I deliver and I have over twenty years experience working with a wide range of organisations, businesses, funders, health professionals and various people in the local community.
It took me many years to find my vocation in life but what I do know is that I receive great job satisfaction delivering my sessions to the people that I love to inspire and work with.
In my sessions I will provide all art/craft resources and a kit will be provided for each person for the relevant themed project and I will supply differentiated learning resources for people who need additional help to achieve the same results as everyone else.
I have delivered sessions and worked with people living with Dementia, Visually impaired/blind people, Family Learning, Summer workshops For Children, people who are hard of hearing, people with Learning Disabilities, people with Mental Health Needs and many more to name.
I also deliver bespoke workshops privately for a large magazine company who would like to offer their guests additional art/craft activities throughout their stay and I have delivered many crafty workshops at various Warner Hotels, venues such as: Gunton Hall, Thoresby Hall, Norton Grange Coastal resort, Bodelwyddan Castle in Wales, Butlins in Skegness and Alvaston Hall which I enjoy tremendously.
I hope that I will be able to inspire you in the near future and look forward to an amazing experience delivering and inspiring people at one of my sessions on a cruise ship.
