WORKSHOPS

 

I teach several different workshops in a variety of locations (click on Facebook icon above for latest info). If you are interested in holding or participating in one please contact me for more details.

'You are a miracle worker, and I appreciate being encouraged to confront my fears in such a comfortable and enjoyable way. I am still smiling!  You should be available on the NHS!'                                                                 Marlborough Embroiderers' Guild

'I really enjoyed my weekend 'discovering my inner artist' (which I had hoped would be there!).  I found the structure and pace of the course perfect.  The process of exploring a chosen theme, firstly with printing and then moving on to wire work really helped develop my confidence.  Juliette was instructive and encouraging and I found the course totally absorbing.  I was very pleased with all I acomplished over the weekend, and it was a bonus to takeaway some printing, a wire work piece and a picture.   Thank you Juliette for a fun and very productive weekend'.                                Jane, Missenden Abbey

                       EXHIBITIONS
I regularly take part in exhibitions in Buckinghamshire in galleries such as Obsidian, The Upstairs Gallery, and A Little Bird Gallery. I have also participated in Bucks Open Studios for several years.
 

        

'Your fish artwork is situated on my porch wall and is the first thing you see as you walk through the door. Both my husband and I truly love it!                                                      Rachel, Bucks

                            TALKS
I often get booked for giving talks and presentations to a range of different Art and/or Textile Groups and have also recently been invited to join the Bucks WI Speaker List, giving talks across the county. I usually talk about my background at these events and explain my creative journey and what has inspired me to create my current mixed media artworks. Sometimes I talk about how being creative has been an Art Therapy for me and has also helped me to get through some very challenging times in my life.
I use a combination of slide shows and products to illustrate my points. I tend to bring lots of examples of my work to these talks along with a range of sketchbooks to show how I go from an idea to a finished piece and I am always happy to answer questions from the audience.
 
I have been a teacher for over 12 years and have considerable experience of talking to large groups. If you are interested in booking a talk please do get in touch, references provided. 

''Juliette is an inspirational, enthusiastic and honest speaker and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening with her.'                                                                       Fran, Bedford Embroiderers' Guild

Thank you for giving such an interesting talk. I know the members really enjoyed hearing about your work and your processes and judging by the crowd around your tables they were all very keen to look at your beautiful work and see the detail up close, as well as exploring your fantastic sketchbooks.'
