Birty at NEC

Took some skirts up to the Design and Technology show at the NEC to make Birtys with Practical Action and [re]design.The stand was choc-a-block all day with teachers enthused about sustainability and design in education. Great stuff. There are loads of brilliant ideas and resources for teachers and schools on the Practical Action website. Check it out!


I’ve been invited to run some eco workshops in Norway with my old friends at Practical Action. The ties with Practical Action go right back to my A levels when I took part in the Sustainable Design Award as part of my D&T coursework. We went to Norway for the first time in 2006 and we’re heading over this year to run some sustainability and creativity workshops for a week. I’ll also be staying on to teach Flash (gulp!) and Illustrator to students at the college and teachers too. I’m excited!
