Talks to groups

I offer talks of approximately 1 hour with the opportunity to see a demonstration and opportunities to purchase work. The title of the talk is “From Bugattis to butterflies”. I describe how I spent time making Bugattis, 30 years ago, and follows the road taken and skills picked up along the way to result in butterflies being developed. Other product developments are also described.

Make your own

For groups of 6. I have a (fairly) portable set of equipment that could be brought to you to allow butterflies to be made. Full instruction given and materials. Have the opportunity to make any of the garden ornaments for yourself or make wonderful gifts.

Please enquire.
