Research interests

I have two streams in my research as a maker I am passionate about reinvigorating artisan craft for future fashion. I like to study traditional surface pattern / embellishment techniques of the past and find a new purpose, relevance for them. 

I am also very interested in Fashion Curration and how this is a changing interface. I was involved in the co-curation of the launch and a subsequent alumni event of “Catwalking” by Chris Moore at Bowes Museum.

I designed and co-curated Re-Fashion at The Discovery Museum.This exhibition featured 60 exquisite objects from the collection at Newcastle’s Discovery Museum, made between 1701 and 1916.
