About me

DurgaMata has worked in several multi-ethnic schools and as a facilitator for the University of the First Age. In 2009 Durga-Mata started offering RE and Community Cohesion consultation and is now a Subject Genius for RE.
Now semi-retired from teaching DurgaMata continues to support her colleagues by creating resources and offering RE Consultancy.

For the past 5 years DurgaMata has been developing a business using Silk-Painting to make unique Designer hand-painted Silk Scarves and offering meditative workshops using Silk-Painting to reduce stress and create beautiful paintings and scarves - see www.bluelotus-art.co.uk
