R9679 QEST-STRAPLINE LOGO-GOLD-RGBI’m fascinated by anything made of fabric and have a particular interest in fashion history.┬áThe purpose of this site is to document works in progress, research into fashion history and to share my general love of textiles. I’m always up for learning a new skill and am trying my hand at Bobbin Lace at the moment. I am currently a 2nd year student on the MPhil Textile Conservation programme at the University of Glasgow.


In March 2014 I was made a QEST Scholar to support my Textile Conservation training. In June 2014 I was also awarded a bursary from The York Foundation of Conservation and Craftsmanship to further assist with this training. In January 2015 The McGlashlan Charitable Trust also awarded a bursary to help with my second year at Glasgow. I was awarded a Zibby Garnett Travelling Fellowship in March 2015 to support a summer placement abroad. I am extremely grateful for everyone’s support.
