Research interests

My PhD research explores explores professional development in craft higher education. My focus is on pedagogical framings of craft and craft work – how craft work and creative practice is presented in higher education and how such approaches influence the professional awareness and development of crafts graduates.

I also seek to identify the skills needs of early career practitioners in developing sustainable creative practice post-graduation – what are the priority skills, how are these developed and what additional support is required both within and outside of higher education.
