About Me


imageWelcome to my creative perspective on education.. After working in the Secondary sector for 8 years and progressing up to Head of Art, I moved to FE a couple of years ago to continue to share my enthusiasm for creative teaching as ‘Learning and Skills Lead’ for Art and Photography (which also includes Fashion) in Lincoln. I am really passionate about my job and LOVE teaching such a creative subject… this has led me to now take the step to go part time with my ‘proper job’ to spend more time developing my own freelance work, creative workshops and Art kit sales.

My freelance and consultancy work

Alongside my ‘day job’ I also work as a freelance education consultant and can provide support for teacher training and mentoring, INSET training and practical creative workshops for both students and staff. I specialise in creative teaching methods and engaging strategies across the education sector.

 My passion for good quality learning experiences has also led me to develop my education resources range. This has been a labour of love and has evolved into something that I have now added to the range of products and services that I offer to help you to explore different ways to inject a little creative style into your classroom.

If you would like further information on my education training, would like to make a booking or would like to discuss a bespoke package including resources relevant to your learners.. please email me on: mrsartytextiles@gmail.com to discuss your requirements.
