Commissioning a Story Mat

I am passionate about creating story mats which will be used, and used well.

I love working collaboratively with stakeholders, exploring lots of ideas and possibilities to come up with a design that really works, then bringing this to life
with my sewing skills.

I bring a wealth of experience, with a history of successful commissions, a background as teacher, research scientist and textile artist, and with an experienced professional storyteller as collaborator.
