About the tutor

Georgina is a textile artist who has exhibited around the UK and internationally, and an experienced tutor, facilitator and workshop leader.  She believes that stepping away from the “use and throw-away” mindset and instead looking to repair, adapt, and beautify can benefit both our environment- in terms of reduced waste and consumption -and ourselves, in that we can take the opportunity to (re)connect in a creative, playful and soul-enriching way with our clothes and possessions.
