A once in a lifetime opportunity to visit St. Catherine’s Monastery in Mount Sinai with Wind Sand and Stars.

Dates : 9th – 16th November 2023

Price £1,720

Booking with WIND SAND & STARS.

St Catherine’s holds many unique manuscripts, treasures from royal houses & religious communities from all over Christendom.   We will look and study these first-hand & then try your own hand with a calligraphy pen & ink.  It’s people and stories who lie behind these remarkable artefacts, and I am intrigued and curious to know who they were and how they were created, thereby bringing meaning & understanding to our own modern lives.



New dates just released!

Teaching is a celebration of transformation — it’s a shared experience!

With over twenty years of professional experience, I have shared knowledge with creative adventurers of all ages – people from all around the globe.

This is what they have said:

“I found myself with that inner aliveness that comes about when I am in that space of synchronicity where what is happening outside is totally in tune with what is searched for from the inner world”

“This was no ordinary workshop; you beautifully and gently integrated the energy within the group with the skill and experience you wanted to share and enabled each of us to bring it into ourselves in the way we each needed or wanted”

“I just loved it. I’m still buzzing…”

“Spending time with you in your atelier and being able to see all your treasures was a real experience”

 “I could listen to you speak for hours on end!”

Courses and lectures can be designed for individuals, groups and companies.

Drawing on multiple sources for inspiration, I encourage a practical approach to creativity — hand writing / brushwork / free hand stitching / body work / voice work/ group work / calligraphy and lettering with quill, pen, brush and needle.
