Kate Shorey



I regularly teach workshops and courses for a range of organisations, including Recovery Colleges across Maidenhead, Windsor and Wokingham, and I've previously taught workshops at The Rising Sun Art Centre and in schools. I endeavour to teach holistically, and often include mindfulness exercises within workshop 'warm-ups,' which participants can then apply to their day to day lives.  I also emphasise the use of sustainable materials and processes within the workshops and courses, for example demonstrating how people can repurpose materials in their work, and channel thoughts and feelings to make meaningful pieces. See some examples of student work below.


I've taught art and video workshops to children of all ages. I try and give children the freedom and scope to use their imagination, and have creative freedom whilst producing work. I've taught art at The World Yoga Festival in the family area for two consecutive years- see some examples of the results below. I regularly teach video and animation workshops to children and teenagers with Real Time, and as an Arts Award Advisor I facilitate my students in receiving this qualification. I have a recent enhanced DBS check and I'm registered with the DBS update service.
