Old Bedalian 2008

I took a degree in art history after leaving Bedales. Since then I have been studying bookbinding and am slowly trying to establish a career in the field.

I am sure my time at Bedales had an influence on what I am doing now, particularly the artistic opportunities that I had there, and the development of my interest in art and craft. I doubt that I would have been so open to such a specialised craft as bookbinding had I not had such interesting opportunities at Bedales, which I am so grateful for as I absolutely love what I am doing. My only wish is that I had taken more notice of the beautiful books in the library!
