This is me – Wendy Ward.
I opened MIY Workshop in January 2012 after teaching my own independent sewing classes for adults for over a year. I have been teaching dressmaking, pattern cutting and textiles at various colleges and adult education centres throughout Brighton since 2007. I have a degree in Fashion Design, an MA in Design and am a fully qualified, registered and CRB cleared teacher. I am a member of the Institute for Learning which is the professional body for teachers, tutors, trainers and student teachers in the further education and skills sector.
In April 2011 I was granted membership of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
After working as a designer in the fashion industry for 7 years I now have my own label for which I design and make a range of clothing and accessories.
Oh, and this is Gypsydog, my occasional workshop assistant….
