We are both art school trained, graduated in 1992 and started collaborating when we formed our arts business Bonker*s Clutterbucks in 2010. We have since combined making and selling our work and undertaking arts and heritage commissions, school programmes and art therapy. We have worked on numerous projects for Blackpool Council over the last few years via the Library, Arts and and Education Departments and also Zed Arts in Manchester. We have gained experience working with a broad spectrum of ages and abilities, with school children aged 6 to 11, special needs children, youth groups, drama clubs, art for health, senior card making groups and heritage groups. We are both CRB/DBS cleared. We have delivered workshops in schools across Blackpool, in Manchester and created art installations and run workshops at the hugely successful family festival Wordpool for the last five years. We have an understanding of what’s involved in delivering workshops to small groups and large events, sourcing materials to budget, catering for large numbers, engaging with everyone and providing one to one help and inspiration when required.
