    I am a senior lecturer on the Staffordshire University 3D Designer Maker BA (Hons) course. The course is a mixed material course and so I have the opportunity to work with students not only with their ceramic designs and making processes but also with many other materials and objects such as furniture and jewelry. Working alongside the amazing course leader Timothy Forrester and other design and industry experts, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge, skills, and over 25 years of experience with the next generation of creatives. https://www.staffs.ac.uk/course/3d-designer-maker-ba
