“We love having Angie deliver ceramic workshops for Artfelt at The Children’s Hospital. Her approach is always positive, upbeat and responsive, she is great at helping us turn a medical environment into a creative space where young people can be inspired and happily distracted. I really appreciate her organization and how she can calmly adapt a session to engage a toddler one minute and the next minute engage a teenager…it’s a skill to have! I feel that her delivery allows young people to fully engage with their creativity and really flourish. I’ve been particularly impressed with Angie’s work at The Becton Centre, our young people there have made skillful, accomplished creations, and their achievements have been enabled by Angie’s positive confidence-building approach.”

Angie worked with South Yorkshire Housing Association and our residents from Slingsby Place in Sheffield. The commission was to create a piece of public artwork with customer voice at its heart. The aim was to celebrate the new development and connect residents who live there.
Angie’s warm and friendly personality was a hit with residents, her knowledge of how to inspire communities was fantastic and the events and workshops she arranged were fun for everyone involved. She engaged with our residents right from the start and made sure the finished piece resonates with them.
The quality of the artwork is amazing and Angie was an absolute pleasure to work with.
