"Julia has been a tremendous help to me in developing my portfolio. I was able to explore many techniques and incorporate my day job skills as an interior stylist into my work in order to demonstrate my interest in textiles...She made me explore textiles in a new manner and I found her help supportive and inspiring.
Julia gave me the much needed direction that was essential to me...I have just found out I have been accepted onto the MA at London Met so I am absolutely delighted and could not have done it without Julia’s wonderful tuition."
