When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
My chief enthusiasms have always been words, books and making things so bookbinding combines these elements perfectly. It's also accessible and fun. As a secondary school English teacher, I worked with young people to give them the confidence to be creative with language. Now I want to explore the possibilities offered by combining words with the craft of constructing books in different forms and expressing ideas in new ways. As a member of the Society of Bookbinders, I have been lucky enough to attend workshops with some expert professionals in this area and, although I'm not an expert myself, I know how satisfying it can be to create something unique and personal, using simple materials with traditional tools and skills. Far from dry and dusty, this is a fascinating world offering endless possibilities for self-expression.
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.

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!

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
