How would you describe your role to someone you’ve just met?
I make connections with awesome new teachers and tell them about the work we do – and why we do it! A big part of my job is highlighting the importance of community connection and creative expression and outlining the positive impact that this has on our mental health and wellbeing.
Which workshop is on your wishlist?
I’m most excited to learn pottery this holiday season! I need a new birdbath for the many cockatoos that come visiting and I’m really keen to have something in my garden that I’ve made myself.
Who are you bringing along?
My good friend, Nabila, loves pottery and has amazing design aesthetics, so she would be able to give me some great suggestions on some of the ideas I have. She’s also been dabbling in some pottery herself and has made mugs that she serves me tea in when we catch up for one of our endless conversations. Normally, we talk about our world, social connections and cultural conditioning. We also chat about food (we’re both foodies!) and share our ideas for art and creativity. We laugh – and sometimes cry – about our life journeys. We both dream of sharing a pottery studio and kiln one day where we can just ‘play with clay all day’. Nabila and I both love pottery because it’s so malleable and allows for creativity and playfulness. You can make beautiful homewares or garden art – the list is endless.
