About me

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

2016

Peer Proofreader

iASK Brighton

Feb 2015 - May 2016
  • Brighton BN2 4GB, UK
  • Freelance
  • 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.

2014

Carpenter

Great Dixter House and Gardens

Jun 2014 - Sep 2014
  • Northiam, Rye TN31 6PH, UK
  • Freelance
  • 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.

2013

Teacher

Tonbridge Grammar School Craft Club

Sep 2012 - May 2013
  • Tonbridge, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • 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.
