Textile Travels


I live in a small coastal town in north Essex with my husband Andy and our Border Terrier Bella.

I have always been interested in textiles, as a child making dolls clothes and toys progressing to making my own clothes in my teens and twenties.  I have studied embroidery with City & Guilds in the mid ’90’s then subsequently dabbled in many other crafts including stained glass and fused glass.

I have decided to study for the textile degree course with OCA because I have always wanted to study for a degree in a creative subject where my skill set and interests lie.  I am looking forward to taking on new challenges, pushing my boundaries and learning new skills.  I am under no illusion that this is going to be an easy journey but I hope this blog will show my progress and maybe inspire someone else to take their own journey.
