Faith is a professional sculptor with a studio in Liverpool. She is a qualified art teacher with a PGCE Secondary Art & Design from Liverpool John Moores University, so understands the principles of how students learn, classroom management and the demands of the national curriculum. She works regularly with schools across the North West devising and leading short, one day workshops through to longer residencies. She develops 3D sculpture projects suitable for Key Stage 1, 2, 3 and also offers INSET sessions.

The simple construction techniques she has developed working with recycled materials such as newspaper, wire, cardboard and tape enable children and young people of varying abilities to create successful sculptures quickly, either individually or in groups. Faith has particular experience of, and an interest in working with students with emotional and behavioural challenges, learning difficulties and sensory impairments, as they usually excel and achieve incredible results participating in her workshops.

Julie has practised widely as an contemporary landscape painter using the language of romanticism and the responses of Turner, Blake and Palmer. She has exhibited widely across the UK and was recently awarded "North of England artist of the Year" by the National Open Art Competition in London.

She has also worked as a teacher for children with severe and complex learning difficulties for the last eighteen years, and has a special interest in multi-sensory art.

I"m Rachel and I am a vintage photographer, artist, sessional musician and university lecturer. I work with a wide variety of arts, community and educational organisations across all ages (8+ to adult) through my business Little Vintage Photography, looking at mindful analogue photographic processes, visual storytelling and the convergence of traditional and modern technology through STEM and the arts. I work across both education and entertainment, running "Discover & Create" workshops and courses and collaborate closely with heritage, craft, art, literacy, science and tech sectors to combine the science and engineering of traditional photography with modern technology in order to produce creative and artistic output in a slower, more mindful way.

I also co-host the UK"s Analogue Photography Podcast and am contributing author for analogue photography industry blogs. I was honoured to be listed as a Role Model for Innovate Her/Liverpool Girl Geeks and given the opportunity to exhibit for several galleries across the UK.
