Sonas – Kim’s teaching studio in Ireland


From April 2019 Kim will be selling her work form the studio. If you are in the area, why not drop by. Just give her a ring to see if she is there.

The studio should be open most weekends in June and July. Again, Check before you travel.

The studio at Sonas is now up and running. I taught various workshops last year and 2019 will see local artist and sculptor Krystyna Pomeroy joining me to deliver several of her workshops.  We will be offering one and 2 days workshops as well as longer summer schools.

In 2020 we will be offering workshops with international tutors so do keep an eye on the diary.

If you are part of a group and would like me to travel to you, wherever you are in the world, do email me and we can discuss what you might like.

Are you stuck as to which direction to take with your work?
I also offer mentoring sessions via Skype.

Be inspired by the local dry stone walls, incredible geology, the lighthouse and friendly welcome. We will go out to take photos/draw or stay inside and draw from the wonderful views and artefacts in and around Kim’s colourful and interesting home.

You will create several drawings, which can then be made into printing blocks. We will print onto paper and fabric to create beautiful layered surfaces on which to stitch by hand.
