About your Tutor
Bev is joint owner of Old bank Studios along with husband Nigel and runs the separate textile studio which is fully equipped with high end sewing machines. This is what she says:
My background is in interior design and soft furnishing, for which I hold the highest level OCN and City & Guilds and am qualified to teach in adult education.
I am also a keen painter and over the years have enjoyed mixing it all up and exploring machine embroidery with mixed media.
I never stop experimenting and am privileged to have access to an endless source of materials and so many other talented artists and tutors.
A little bit of free motion embroidery experience is helpful.
