Hi, I’m Gemma, from the 1st of August I will be the Programme Director for ardington academy. I’m a communicator at heart - writing, talking, laughing - communication forms the basis of everything I do. Add to that my unwavering belief that creativity is comfort food for the soul, and it’s clear that this is the place for me.
Years of working in the charitable sector have shaped the way I look at the world, and have left me with a real passion to explore the power of art and it’s place in improving well-being. For me, arts and crafts are a tonic for life. But I know that often finding the time, or finding an accessible space, can be a barrier.
My vision for ardington academy is to use the (oft maligned) wonders of modern technology to connect you to something exciting and new from the comfort of your own home. I want everyone to have the opportunity to explore new ideas, meet new people, learn new skills - and hopefully feel that fabulous creative buzz! I look forward to meeting you soon...
