Curating and..

I curate craft and design exhibitions,  I’m currently working on two exhibitions with tapestry maker Jennie Moncur and embroiderer Anne Kelly for Ruthin Craft Centre in Wales in 2021.

I do talks about my writing, digital and curating work. This year I am 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.
