Meet the Team

Abby Reed
Lead tutor

"The chance to create offers us so much: escapism, a challenge, to have fun, to learn, to make friends, to be messy, and most of all a space to be masters of our own worlds in which we will create!’’ Abby has been part of the Bristol art scene for over 10 years. Exhibiting locally and part of the Jamaica Street Artists group, her large scale paintings that celebrate the natural form are well known across the city and beyond. In recent years she has expanded her practice to include community based workshops offering creative support to the Elderly and children through a variety of mediums.

Sophie Rae
RWA Junior Drawing School Tutor

Sophie Rae loves creating colourful prints by applying ink directly to the paper with a roller, sometimes using stencils to help form the image. Her classes allow people to experiment and play with a really interesting print process that can be done at home, with spontaneity. She enjoys variety and is also found doing illustration commissions and facilitating community arts projects, such as the mural on Church Road in Redfield, or going into schools and colleges to teach her process to young students.

Victoria Willmott
Session Leader

Victoria is a Bristol-based illustrator and artist-educator. She has a wealth of experience running workshops for children and families across Bristol and Somerset, including the RWA, Bristol Print Collective and Hauser and Wirth, Bruton.
