My work

About

Hi I live in Bewerley and have spent many years teaching, first as an English teacher , and then as an Outdoor Education teacher at Bewerley Park Centre. The latter has given me a passion for Nidderdale from it’s open moorland landscapes down to the wonderful meadows and verges. Being from a farming background I have to be outside to be completely at ease – and I like to explore and wander about! I was lucky enough to return to college to study for a foundation degree in “Contemporary Textile Practice” at Hartlepool college of Art and Design. This inspiring experience, drawn out over four years, gave me such diverse skills; and a joy in experimentation which has led me down a route of being an excited “jack of all trades”. So in early retirement, I have taken the plunge to run my own gallery/ shop as I call it. Opening only last April it is still a very new venture. Happily climbing the learning curve. Gill
