The PAW Team

Purbeck Art Weeks is run by a small core team of Trustees who are supported by a number of key Co-ordinators and numerous volunteers.


Charlotte Heathpublicity and visual arts

Charlotte Heath has a degree in Textiles from Camberwell School of Art, and was practising weaver and teacher for many years. In the early 1980’s she went to Oman to coordinate a Weaving Project in the Bedouin communities, her associated research led to a PhD, which she completed at the University of E.Anglia in 1995. This took her to the UK Dept for International Development where she worked as a Social Development Adviser and team leader until retiring in 2012. Making the arts accessible to people has always been important to her, and so she was delighted to be able to join the PAW Board in 2014, taking over as Chair in 2016.
