A bit about Joelle:

Firstly we're delighted to have Joelle back with us as a guest tutor! (For the first few years Joelle was our sewing and upcycling inspiration)

Joelle now lives in North Lincolnshire where you will often find her wandering in the lanes collecting fallen leaves, gaining inspiration for her next project and rummaging in local charity shops in search of beautiful fabrics, she can never resist rescuing velvet, silk and fine linens.

Joelle recently graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Textiles from Hull School of Art and Design.

She explores and enjoys how diverse processes such as dye, print and hand stitch sit together in surprising ways.

Protecting the natural environment is a major concern for Joelle, she explores ways to challenge the paradigm of industrial fashion and the use of dyes and chemicals that pollute rivers, by experimenting with dyes made from locally available materials with the aim of creating beautiful useful and wearable textiles.

She also writes a blog: The Eco Wardrobe Warrior about sustainability is-sues, capsule wardrobes and sharing her upcycled clothing projects.
