Describe your approach to teaching.
I believe in practical teaching methods with accompanying in-depth tuition notes. Each stage I’ll demonstrate, followed by the students putting what they’ve learned into practice.
What inspires your own work?
I’m a lover of design and all arts and crafts, contemporary and traditional. Keeping old traditions alive inspires me as does creating something completely innovative.
