Self-directed learning centre (2017)
Growing Free School was a safe, resource-rich space for children aged 4 - 18 where the focus lay on natural self-directed learning. It was open from January to September in 2017. It was a fun place to be.
Maths Play Workshops (2016)
I am occasionally available for consultations regarding innovative ways to incorporate hands-on toys as prompts for open-ended maths learning and creative thinking.
Learning about learning (2014/2015)
I am passionate about and fascinated by learning. I have several years of experience teaching in mainstream positions, of all ages, in both South Africa and abroad. I then moved on to experimenting with ways of learning. My own interests include maths and language. I write more broadly on topics of learning and growing here.
The Falconer Foundry (2013-present)
In 2013, I returned to South Africa, after time spent living in Taiwan and traveling, and founded The Falconer Foundry alongside my husband. My brother-in-law Luke joined us in 2015 and together we grew our business to a staff of six and made beautiful life-size sculptures together. We downsized in 2018, and now run with a production staff of three, and the business is led by myself and my husband.
