Curating and..

I curate craft and design exhibitions,  I’m currently working on two exhibitions with tapestry maker Jennie Moncur and embroiderer Anne Kelly, both due to open this year at Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales.

I recently did a talk ‘Recoding Clay: what is being done in the digital space?’ at the CoCA Restating Clay online ceramics symposium. Last year I was the Guest Judge for the Design Writing Prize for the Design History Society and I talked about design writing on a podcast for them, you can listen to it here.

I have also lectured at my alma mater, the Royal College of Art.
