Artist/maker/designer based in Brighton, United Kingdom. I am an individual dedicated to fresh ideas and new approaches, with the practical knowledge to back them up. I am a true generalist at heart with a wide skill base, having dabbled in puppet-making and product design, and lately ceramics. I have just completed my degree in 3D Design and Craft (wood, metals, ceramics, polymers). @jasminevorley
Working on making sets and models for an exciting new stop animation feature film. Working in a variety of materials to make high-quality, detailed miniatures to bring life to each meticulous scene.
As a full-time intern I undertook a variety of roles in graphic design, writing and social media for MyGreenPod magazine, a sustainable products publication distributed quarterly with the Guardian. I had to be flexible, professional and proactive, as I was trusted with representing the company in a variety of ways. Examples of tasks I carried out include designing a leaflet, writing a press release and short article, pitching to potential clients over the phone, sending professional emails and managing a Twitter account.
I took part in a collaborative project between Veolia Environmental Solutions and the University of Brighton, developing uses for their ‘Pro-Fibre’ material which is made from low-grade waste paper. The team dyed, formed, moulded, pressed, laser cut and laminated our way to some new possibilities for furniture, products and architecture.
I volunteered in my university peer proofreading service, checking around three assignments per term for international students needing support in English. Assignments would be emailed to me and I would suggest changes with the Microsoft Word 'track changes' tool, and send it back within a few days. If they wanted to, I would occasionally meet with the student to go through the changes I had suggested. I needed excellent communication skills and a high level of English.
Volunteered part-time at a well-known public garden, working with their full-time carpenters. I learned traditional craft methods such as wood splitting and using a drawknife, to make wooden hurdles, benches and ladders out of sweet chestnut to sell in the gift shop. Machine tools such as a circular saw were also used to speed up the production line.
I ran an after-school arts and crafts club girls aged 11-14 at my school, preparing and leading the sessions independently. This required me to organise a completely new session every week, including the sourcing of materials and information. During the classes I had to give clear, effective instruction to pupils, ensure safe working and command a degree of respect. I learned how to give students a clear aim but to give plenty of room for creativity, and how to get this balance right when designing a lesson plan.
