Amplifying Your Artistic Voice
I am firmly ensconced in the UK’s creative scene, I studied ceramics and I am a curator, mentor, speaker and a working actor. I know how hard it is as an artist to feel ‘heard’ and this is why I created Making Goode.
Making Goode has a very specific ambition, to help the creative community hone and successfully share their unique voices.
How I Can Support You
Every designer-maker can identify within their business specific areas that would benefit from improvement. Mentoring is a way for a maker to explore their practice with help, guidance, goals and focus to achieve their potential as a maker and a business.
TALKS & JUDGING
Talks can be given either in person or online and they are a perfect way for organisations to offer business development advice, and classes, to their members, guests and clients. With over a decade of experience, I am perfectly placed to help you and your makers.
CURATION & EVENTS
It is my mission to facilitate designer-makers being seen and heard. Curating allows me to offer outstanding makers the opportunity to be seen by customers and industry leaders, to hone their presentation and selling skills, and to be supported throughout.
I am surrounded by beautiful handmade work. In addition to curation, I have carved out an online space where I can share work that has touched me. Come and read about some exceptional makers I have discovered on my travels.
