As a practising teacher, artist and textile designer with many years of experience in leading workshops and projects in Primary Schools and Community Art Projects, Vinny is now able to offer her educational services to schools. She can work on large scale sculptural installations and small workshops demonstrating many different art and textile techniques. Children can come along to her studio based on Mersea Island, or Vinny can come to your school, and discover ways of working with textiles such as wall hangings, banners, t-shirts etc to create striking colourful designs. They can create individual pieces or work together on a larger project.
See some examples of this work below.

Points of Intersection
The Points of Intersection is a public art project managed by Acuity Arts for
Allia at Cambridge's Future Business Centre.
Users and tenants of the building, funders, supporters and the immediate community, including local school children, were involved throughout in a series of workshops.
Unveiled to the public at the Future Business Centre's second birthday celebrations on 24 November 2015, The Points of Intersection reflects the Centre's social and environmental focus with a series of permanent artworks inside and outside the building by four very different artists. I was commissioned to work with both the tenants of the building and the wider community to create a series of workshops . The artwork would then be photographed and then incorporated into the artwork created by artist Helen Marshall - The Peoples Picture .
