Strands of our work
The Clan of the Cailleach
I’m connecting more and more with my heritage of the Cailleach.. the folk goddess of the lands of my clan. This work has been blessed by my late auntie who told me stories I had forgotten about our clan connection with the Cailleach and even though she was living with dementia she remembered the stories. I was blown away when she breathed the words into my drum “I am a Cailleach”.
This Clan of the Cailleach work will honour her and my grandmother who lived by the waters of the Cailleach in Argyll.
The Journal Of Dementia Care Conference
As nationally recognised dementia trainers we have various models to share such as working with people living with dementia, inspirational supervision and looking after staff. We offer services for carers too, but our favourite project is drumming with people living with dementia.

Plymouth Womens Network and other projects.
Together with other project Feminist Fusion we support women's work in our city and further afield. We have run women's groups in Wales as well as different parts of Devon. Experienced in women's work at a very deep level in acute mental health services we want to bring the heartbeat of the drum into healing and development work for women. We raise awareness for the things that women face locally and support local projects.
Standing with our Sisters
We work with our indigenous sisters to raise awareness of the Missing And Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit people in North America.

With a great deal of experience in statutory Dementia work we have expanded into Dementia Drumming.
Having learned more about Honouring Our Elders in work with our First Nations teachers we use the drum in Dementia Drumming workshops and in care settings.
We have aligned with various other groups and in particular we like to support Norms Mac and https://purpleangel-global.com/ who are based in Devon. They have a worldwide community and I have been honoured to meet this beautiful lady Gerda in America supported by her daughter Daisy Vest of https://www.facebook.com/DaysEyeArt.. I was so happy to work with these ladies I made a drum for Gerda and posted it over… and am delighted to say she loved it and played it till she passed on. A very special Elder much missed...
