Oxford Summer School

Christine Green

I am passionate about art and design across many disciplines and I enjoy sharing this passion with my students. I take a holistic approach to art and craft, often mixing and matching disciplines and styles. I trained as a graphic designer and worked for the BBC creating title sequences. I gained my PGCE at Goldsmiths and I now run numerous courses teaching various styles of patchworking, paper cutting, hand drawn lettering. I also give inspirational talks and demonstrations to interested groups. I take a relaxed approach to my crafts and encourage my students to do the same whilst developing their techniques and style, and providing them with individual support as they grow in confidence.
