"Hi! I'm Alice. I helped with the initial phase of the Jetty Lane rebuild project and am really pleased to now be working from this site, getting the use back for the community. I'm an artist and a 'founder-sculptor', running a bronze foundry as part of my studio. I have a participatory arts practice alongside my sculpture and design work. I co-founded and manage The Portable Foundry Project, delivering sculpture and bronze casting workshops for students and adult learners. These projects aim to foster confidence in participants, perhaps even raise aspirations for some. I believe for those of us without an 'artistic background', or with an upbringing not fully understanding of creativity, meeting professional practitioners can evidence that a career in the Creative Arts is possible. Certainly experiences like this in my own childhood in Suffolk had such an effect on me and I love having the chance to offer that opportunity to others."
