teaching


Smith has led a number of workshops for adults and children. These included 1/2 day workshops exploring sculpture for Craven District Council, Settle Primary School, Clapham Primary School and Pool in Wharfedale Primary School. Smith has also taught workshops in London and for the Stroud Museum, Gloucestershire. On occasion Smith will give private tuition for portraiture.

For 6 years Smith taught at the Field Studies Centre at Malham Tarn, North Yorkshire a 3 day workshop entitled “Sculpture – an exploration”.   Through the use of clay both the “additive/building” work and “removing/carving” was explored. The individual was encouraged – to draw themselves out allowing the natural development of their own work. Results were both interesting and exciting.
