Meet the Volunteer - Margaret McGovern

We have another wonderful Volunteer we'd like you to meet! This week, let us introduce you to Margaret McGovern, who has been a great addition to the Create team.

‘Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee I have continued to work on my own sculptural practice which explores materiality and sculptural forms, referencing elements from the man-made and natural environment.  I have also gained experience working within various areas of creative education including both community and classroom learning.

What attracted me to Project Ability was my interest in art as both a leisure activity and therapy; as opposed to prescriptive learning. I have really enjoyed contributing to the Saturday Create workshops at Project Ability.  This has been a terrific experience getting to know the artists - how their interests and personalities shine through in their work.  The experience also taught me that through participating in the workshops learning becomes a real two-way process, where we are constantly learning from each other.  Project Ability has been a fantastic opportunity to learn and develop new skills working within a relaxed creative environment.’

Thank you Margaret!
