This is the shiny new blog to hold all my thoughts, notes and images from OCA module A Textiles Vocabulary.
As a short background:
I have achieved a MSci Physics with Theoretical Physics (1st class honours) and went on to study for a PhD in Theoretical Particle Physics. Unfortunately my health meant that I had to leave and now I am throwing myself into an OCA BA in Creative Arts which allows me to study and work in my own time.
The first module I took was Creative Arts Today and the associated blog can be found here. I may end up referring to posts made here from time to time.
I have some experience sewing and creating my own clothing including crocheted items, knitting anything I can think of and hand painting silk scarves (a sample of which is shown in the site icon). I only really took up sewing this year as a way to create clothing that fits properly and is comfortable when using a wheelchair for much of the time.
I live in Worthing, West Sussex with my gorgeous assistance dog.
