I had learnt different crafts from my grandmother and great grandmother. From the age of ten I started to make clothes for myself so that I could follow the latest fashions at pocket money prices. When I had my own children I made clothes for them too.
I was able to earn money when the children were small by making curtains and soft furnishings. I then decided to
take a City and Guilds qualifications in Fashion and Design. This gave me the confidence to make wedding dresses and wedding clothes. I also went on to do an Art Foundation course which led to a Btec in Ceramics and an Adult Teaching course. Throughout my whole life I've made clothes for myself and others and done arts and crafts as in the photos displayed. I want to pass on my skills and experience to others as in the courses below.
