Henry Hedgepodge Academy of ART is a one room school, a children’s and adult’s safe space for self-expression for healing, growth, creative learning and exploration. As well as therapeutic, my art education sessions are led through expressive arts engagement for literacy + numeracy.
As a creative practitioner I lead a variety of one-to-one and group workshops in my studio and in nature which are designed to bring out an individual’s creative voice. My aim is to gently lead the participant, through the medium of art, to express themselves in whatever way they need. It may be a carefree release of joy or a release from emotional pain.
My work is for all ages and with those who have or who are suffering from bereavement or going through chemotherapy or recovering from emotional or physical difficulties.
I have specific experience in working with those with Aphasia after a stroke and work in tandem with physiotherapy routines.
