“I love having the opportunity to start with an idea, push and develop it by testing and prototyping different designs, before reaching an outcome that is both practical and looks good. I also find it hugely rewarding helping people to discover their hidden talents and develop new skills, which can help set them on a path towards making a living from doing what they love.”
