Liz Bleach

I graduated in 1995 with a degree in Film, Video and Photography from University of Westminster and began my working life in publishing. After having a family I worked for a national children’s charity producing their magazine, pursuing my various crafting hobbies as a guilty pleasure, or to furnish our home. I returned to full time study in 2006 and gained a degree in Architecture, before training as a teacher. I was a teacher of product design, textiles and woodwork at local secondary schools, and explored lots of new materials and creative processes. I learned many of my favourite crafting techniques during my childhood and teens – first from my Mum and then as I pursued it at art college. A 2-year full-time course in fashion and pattern cutting was the starting point for me developing skills in knitting, weaving, and stitch-based textiles of many kinds. An eclectic approach to skills and craft techniques has meant that I have a cross-curricular attitude to crafting. Arts and Crafts traditions of the 19th century coupled with a fascination for modernist designs of the mid-twentieth century underpin my combined use of traditional craft skills and stylish design lines. I am also a committed environmental champion favouring natural or re-used materials which are ethically sourced.
