I have taught at Cottenham Village College for many years.  It is a wonderful venue for Adult and Community Learning with very organised and helpful staff.

My teaching and organisational roles at Cottenham involve the following:

  • Teaching and on the committee -  CVC Summer School on the first week of August each year.

  • Teaching Saturday Day Schools

  • Teaching an Advanced Textiles Workshop fortnightly over term time

  • Teaching/Mentoring Contemporary Textile Art Group  -  Fibrefusion        www.fibrefusion.org.uk
  •         
  • Teaching Short 5 weeks courses:  Free Machine Embroidery, and Creative Embroidery.

  • For twelve years I organised and ran a three day long Textile Fair, the last week-end of February each year called 'Textiles in Focus'.   It became a huge success with well over a 1,000 visitors each year.  Unfortunately the event became too big to be run by one person so to enable it to continue it has been passed on to become a successful commercially run event.  www.textilesinfocus.com.  'Textiles in Focus' 2016 has now been transferred to Camborne Village College, Cambridgeshire.
