There’s nothing I love more than seeing my students joy after a day in the studio.  I think the word “exploration” sums up my approach to teaching.  In my workshops, I provide the materials, the know how, the space and a guided structure which allows you to react, learn and explore for yourself.


My main areas of focus are mixed media, art journaling and bookbinding, which overlap and compliment each other to allow for a wide range of fun and interesting classes.


If you fancy joining me for a class,  sign up to my newsletter (there’s a link in the sidebar and the footer) to be the first to know about new workshops.  You can also join my Facebook Group where you can hook up with others who have been to my classes, or are planning to.

Some comments from previous students:

Thank you Glenda for yet another brilliant workshop. It was such a friendly, inspiring group. I came away with lots of ideas and pages to finish at home. I can’t recommend these workshops enough.  – Beth


It was brilliant, I had so much fun and learnt techniques I didn’t know existed – thank you Glenda for a great time.  – Lesley E


A great day with lots of ink and paint. A lovely lunch courtesy of Adrian and excellent company. ‘Nuff said. – Eileen


My sister Wendy and I had the extreme good fortune to be on holiday in Portpatrick when you held one of your fabulous workshops on mixed media. We were blown away at the knowledge and information on techniques we picked up and had the most incredible fun trying out the different products new to us. Wendy has written up copious notes (she doesn’t trust her memory!) and has a shopping list ready for this weekend. Thank you so very much for all your help and for sharing your knowledge with us. I have been an admirer or your work for years and was blown away at actually meeting you.


Thank you once again and I recommend anyone thinking of signing up for one of your courses or retreats – stop thinking about it and sign up for the most fabulous time of your life.  – Pat

Well…just back from an Art Journaling workshop at Portpatrick Studios with Glenda Waterworth (weather was horrible – rain! LOTS of it so it was slow going at times) and can I say what an amazing and VERY inspirational day it has been! Learned an amazing amount using surprisingly easy sources of information ranging from every day surroundings, events, colours , favourite animals right up to personal situations as well as getting incredibly messy, inky and painty. Learned a lot about different mediums as well as using stencils (I am a stamper so need to expand my methods a little) ! Glenda was very inspirational and informative and her style of teaching is just wonderfully relaxed and without any pressure. It was also lovely chatting to the other ladies in attendance today (none of whose name I can remember sadly).

So if anybody out there fancies a cracking little day out with some inspiration thrown in then try out Glenda workshops ! You won’t be disappointed. Also need to give a big mention to Adrian for doing the lunch and keeping all plied with tea and coffee all day.  Thank you everyone for making my day. – Jacqueline
