About me

I am a recently graduated Textile Design student with a keen interest in hand craft. I am very organised with a considered approach to all tasks and a commitment to producing high quality work. Whilst at university I worked on live briefs from Hallmark and the interiors company Woodhouse and Law. These taught me about working to industry time frames and working to specific requirements that may be out of my own comfort zone. I was fortunate to exhibit my final university collection at New Designers 2017, and undertake work experience with innovative textile companies, Fay McCaul, Selvedge Magazine and Sew Over It, which fueled my interest to pursue a career in this field. My work can be viewed on instagram at: @e.izzard.design
