I have a lot of good memories of the fantastic tutors I had while at Henley, which really made it a great experience for me. Probably one of my best memories is from the workshops and trips organised for our Textiles class. I always looked forward to our lessons where we would often learn something entirely new- some skills I have expanded and others it was a chance to do something completely different-- like screen painting or batik.
I have since graduated from a Costume Interpretation degree at UAL Wimbledon with First class honours. I am now working as a freelancer with a company that makes costumes for various theatre, film and TV shows like Doctor Who and Joseph and the Technicoloured Dream coat.”
