“We had the best few days with Lucy. She was brilliant – so organised, professional, kind and enthusiastic. It was great that she could differentiate the puppet making to meet the needs of all the classes and the children in each class.” Great and Little Shelford C of E Primary School (April 2022)

Great to see learning being supported in a gentle and practical manner, checking in with them as individuals to ensure they are happy with what to do and progress. Throughout, it was apparent that the tutor was trying to build learners’ confidence to have a go, experiment with techniques (play around) and above all, enjoy the process. The tutor had clearly spent some time creating the video and ensuring the clips were visually clear, resulting in a valuable resource. Assessor for ‘creative confidence’ course

Thank you so much, I wasn’t sure about doing the course but so glad I did. I would never have done anything like this if I had to go to a class but being on Zoom meant I had confidence to do it at home. I have learnt so much and am enjoying being able to do all the activities at home. I have lots of new ideas and ways to work, thank you so much. A student attending ‘creative confidence’ course

Just what I had wanted, the course taught me all the basics I wanted to learn. Very informative with good demonstrations and clear instructions. Really enjoyed the course thank you. Attendee on tapestry for beginners course at The Letchworth Settlement

“The teacher is such a great lady. She is very calming and encouraging and she manages to draw people out of themselves in a really subtle way so that everyone is involved. She is very engaging. I am really enjoying it.” A student attending ‘creative confidence’ course

We were delighted with Lucy’s work, she was so calm, organised, well prepared and flexible – she was a delight to work with and we hope we will be able to work with her again in the future. She worked incredibly hard to get through 11 banners in 3 days and adapted the printing to meet the age group of the children. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any school and they would be lucky to have such a talented and creative person working alongside them. St Dominic Catholic Primary School

Lucy has been a visiting artist in our school for over a decade. She is an inspiration to the children and is also willing to share ideas with staff that might be used in school linking to their topics. Lucy is friendly and approachable. She is versatile when in the classroom situation and is able to communicate well with younger children, enabling them to access and explore creative ideas in ways that encourage and enthuse. As staff we particularly appreciate that she will be organised with resources and discuss what she expects us to provide well in advance. Mrs Cook Northfield Infants

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful prints. The children loved working with you and the end result is fantastic. Grange Academy

Lucy designed a very interesting workshop using processes not offered at Park High so it was a unique opportunity. It was obvious throughout the day how much engagement and enjoyment was taking place. I am confident it will help inspire students in their future art work and selection of G,C,S,E Art. Park High

LCADT are extremely pleased with this set of workshops. Liaison with the artist was trouble free, Lucy is very creative, challenges the children, is reliable and conscientious, and developed excellent relationships with the pupils and staff. The co-ordinating Year 5 teacher commented that “Lucy was excellent”. The school also mentioned that attendance levels were better than normal on “art days”. The art work produced is beautiful. Just to say how impressed I was by the finished work at Ferrars Junior, Year 5 have enjoyed working with you. Luton Carnival Arts Development Trust

All our pupils have statements of Special Educational Needs and have complex learning difficulties and individual needs. Lucy related excellently to all pupils and certainly encouraged confidence in their abilities to make decisions and to be creative.

Activities were planned at just the right level for pupils to fully take part and I certainly learnt a lot about the use of sketch books and how to talk to pupils about their work by working alongside Lucy, which I have continued in my own teaching. The pupils all enjoyed and benefited from Lucy’s sessions. Woolgrove School
