Hello my name is Heidi Street-Ward, and I am a textile artist felt maker specialising in running feltmaking workshops in primary, secondary and special schools within the UK.
I live in Northampton and have been teaching feltmaking workshops since I completed a PGCE Teacher Training Course (Secondary Art & Design) at Homerton College, Cambridge over 18 years ago. During the course, I gained lots of experience of teaching art within education and I have been working as a freelance textile artist ever since. Prior to my PGCE course, I gained a BA (Hons) degree in Textiles and Ceramics at Manchester Metropolitan University.
I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association and exhibit my textile work with the Northamptonshire Guild of Designer Craftsmen.
I have Public Liability Insurance up to £5 million, hold a current DBS certificate and have undertaken Safeguarding Training.
