Although I am now retired I will always be a textile designer-maker who is also
a qualified teacher and professional image consultant.
My creative time is spent between teaching eg. natural dyeing; advising on
personal colour and style and making - usually couture pieces and writing.
I am passionate about what I do and encourage others to enjoy the process of
producing and wearing garments and accessories that show individual creativity
and skill and can be enjoyed for many years.
Use the list on the left for more of what I do and check my blog for stories
behind the items I make.
I often get asked questions like :
Can you shorten this cardigan
Can you knit me a jumper
Can you spin this fleece for me etc etc
The answer is yes BUT life is too short and I do these things for myself!
However, if time allows, I can teach individuals, run workshops, demonstrate and
give presentations so that you can learn how to do these things - that way you
will gain far more.
You can see a couple of examples by
