My name is Jyl and I offer workshops and residencies tailored to suit primary schools, early years settings and community groups. My aim is to enable participants to feel supported, guided to be able to take risks, and have fun!
My workshops encourage cooperation and personal expression through investigation, research, design and construction.
I am a Level 3 trained Forest School Leader and am inspired by the philosophy and reflective practice of the preschool centres of Reggio Emilia, Italy and the Forest Schools in Denmark and Sweden.
Whether working in collaboration or by myself, I seek to work in a way that is about engaging with this sense of exploration and playfulness.
As well as working on process-based projects, I also work to commission. I have made and am making numerous mosaic panels, painted murals and textile banners with schools and community settings and private clients.
