REBECCA WOOLLARD

I first discovered my passion for sewing at secondary school when I won the Textiles cup at prize giving in Year 7. Ever since I have made clothes for myself and others.

Over several years, I enchanced my skills by attending various sewing courses in different areas of sewing including dressmaking, tailoring, soft furnishing and specialist areas like corsetry and lingerie.

In 2001, I completed a City & Guilds Certificate in Teaching Adult Learners and became a part time IT tutor for the North West Essex Adult Community College working in their Stansted Mountfitchet, Thaxted and Harlow centres.

In 2007 I started to teach sewing courses for The Leventhorpe School's Adult Community Learning programme and then later that year, I started the Sewing School.
