About your mentors
Suffolk Libraries
Where I belong.
We’re the independent charity that runs Suffolk’s library service. We nurture children’s literacy, support vulnerable people and promote wellbeing across Suffolk.
Sian Burford-Thomas
Theatre maker & practitioner
I work with young people and communities to share stories, explore identity and develop skills through theatre making. I enjoy working with texts and well as devising original work, and it's really important to me that anyone taking part is at the centre of the process. I’m fascinated by what motivates us as human beings, exploring the catalysts for action and change, and the stories that make us who we are. I run inclusive workshops and encourage laughter, teamwork and a positive shared experience. I now work as a freelance artist after having spent 8 brilliant years at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich.
Michelle Brace
Digital artist and visual mixer
I describe my work as digital mixed media. I use all kinds of things as visual source material including moving image, natural materials, collage, mark making, text and photographic textures to build colourful visual compositions. I've recently been collaborating with dancers, musicians and other visual artists to make studio based work and work for live performance and projection. I often work with communities producing and facilitating projects and have a current emphasis on developing my creative practice to support mental health and well-being.
Lyndsay Faiers
Library Information Adviser
I work at the Great Cornard Library and run a kids craft and story session on a Sunday. I am also an animal-loving pet portrait artist, who has tried my hand at most art mediums and crafts at some point!
