Biography

I have always been creative and loved anything arts and crafts. I wasn’t sure what career I wanted to go into, so my plan was to choose something I knew I would enjoy.

The thing I most enjoy about studying at Petroc are the many resources that are available to you, and the teachers. My teacher is so helpful with learning and advice, she makes me feel like I can always turn to her if I am in need of some help!

I spent a week working at the Heathcoat fabric shop in Tiverton. This experience really sparked my love for fabrics and sewing, the staff there were very kind and encouraged me to learn to sew and were very helpful with advice and teaching. I have used fabrics in a lot of my work since!

I am currently looking into becoming a Primary School teacher or an Art teacher. I am taking the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and Media next year for some extra time to plan my future and because I love the course and don’t want to leave yet!

My advice to anyone thinking of studying this course is definitely go for it! The course is amazing. There are so many opportunities that come along with it. The teachers are so helpful and the work is always so fun and interesting, you will learn processes that you never knew existed! Joining this course is one of the best decisions I’ve made!
