Ross is a passionate educator who works as a visual arts teacher working with schools and community groups in the North and West of Ireland. He works as a tour-guide for the Cavan / Fermanagh Geo-park providing field trips and also works as an Irish language tutor.

Ross’ workshops range from pottery to environmental themes and are delivered with a strong emphasis on play and creative centred education, encouraging curiosity, facilitating imagination and shared learning.

Pottery workshops deliver historical themes as well as practical hands on creations, teaching children practical as well as sculptural skills. Biodiversity workshops deliver lessons outside the classroom; nature walks and plant identification, exploring the hedgerows or green areas within the school grounds developing biodiversity areas.

Workshop activities can be linked supporting the current educational programs, or can be developed to combine themes and happenings within the locality, such as historical, cultural and social events. Activities are inclusive of audio-visual, visual arts and crafts; drama, music, song and nature. Creative workshops adapt methods to appropriate learning styles, while catering for different ages, social and learner groups.
