I have embarked on a Textiles degree with the Open College of the Arts as a mature student. I have been doing textiles for many years, mainly costume. When my children were little, they always came home and had been told they needed a costume. With three children that was a little daunting, as usually I had been given a few days. Somehow, I managed. I have always had an interest in theatre design and always managed to produce something. I didn’t like the costumes available and enjoyed the process and the compliments given. My interests are genealogy and I love nothing more than getting on the Harley.
