Hello! I’m Becca! I am a Textile Artist living in a suburban town just north of Bristol. I’m a mum to two fantastic boys and a fighter of Fibromyalgia, a condition which keeps trying to take over my life with pain and fatigue. My art keeps me sane and my boys keep me going!
I’ve enjoyed all forms of crafts and threadwork throughout my life and having left my job as an Audiologist to concentrate on my children, I started to develop my interest in creative textiles and threadwork further. In 2012, I took a City and Guilds level 2 course in ‘Creative Sketchbooks’ which helped me develop my approach to creating ideas to translate into textiles. I then followed this with a non-accredited course in ‘Creative Textiles’ and have just completed Kim Thittichai’s ‘Experimental Textiles’. In September 2017, I started the Advanced Textiles course at the Windsor School of Textile Art. I have recently joined Traverse, a textiles and mixed media group formed by some of the amazing people I met on the Experimental Textiles course and will be involved fully once I have completed my current course.
I want to bring great textile teaching from fantastic textile artists to my local area and give more people the chance to find out how exciting all these techniques and ideas are – please check the workshop page for more details.
