Welcome to my personal blog where I will endeavour to post updates and random rambling from sunny Worthing.
I love creating and am very slowly working towards a degree in Creative Arts with the OCA part time. After completing my first module in creative arts (the associated blog can be found here) I fell in love with textiles and chose this as my second module (this blog can be found here). I have merged previous posts from my old personal blog so that everything can be found in one place.
I use art as a way of managing the pain associated with my condition and have experimented with a wide variety of media. I create silk scarves as a form of wearable art and love creating bespoke items for people. I am in the process of creating a wheelchair accessible studio so once I have figured out all kinks I will post any tips that I discover along the way here too.
Purple Iris is a not-for-profit that I set up in November 2018 to alter, design and create accessible clothing for other people with disabilities. A big part of the project is the accessible sewing sessions where people can come and chat with tea or coffee as well as learn to sew. All the details about the project can be found at purpleiris.org.uk or on our facebook page.
