    • Jane Groves

      Jane Groves loves to connect people, places, and landscapes and specialises in working with young people, inspired by her own observations of nature and informed in part by many children’s lack of interaction with and vocabulary about the natural world.

      Jane delights in bringing her spark to very young children and their families, listening carefully and delighting in the creative response, encouraging passion, playfulness, and curiosity.

      Jane has worked extensively with children and communities through working with The Ark, Dublin City Council, Creativity In The Classroom, The Craft and Design Council, DLR, and many more.
