I run a small, online business selling my own hand-spun yarn, hand dyed fibers and drop spindles and teach spinning and natural dyeing in Cambridge, UK. I studied textile design at university in London.
I have been totally obsessed with ceramics since 2013, but I first dabbled in clay when I persuaded my school teacher to run a pottery club at lunch time for myself and a friend - she obliged - and I still have some precious handmade buttons to this day.
My current pottery related passion involves my new Shimpo RK3D wheel. I'm teaching myself to throw - isn't it a wonderful thing to lift mud and shape it? Prior to this was a love of texturising slabs of clay with knitted or crocheted textiles.
I love the endless experimentation and technical processes working in clay offers. I'm a total nerd when it comes to craft. I want to learn every detail and technique and will happily spend hours reading pottery books and scouring the internet for blogs and youtube videos.
