Carol Cruickshank


Born and raised in Cheshire, I obtained a degree in Biochemistry at Aberystwyth University. I then moved to Essex where I taught an array of subjects – including all the sciences – and, after going back after having children, Science plus Child Development (“you have had children and there is a Biology section”) and then leading on from that teaching Food and Textiles. I always hated textiles at school, it all seemed to be endless pinning and tacking and finicky accuracy … I never dreamed I would teach it or earn my living as a textile artist when I was older. Although fascinated by design and creative innovation I had to choose between Biology and Art when I was 13 and I was to be a scientist, so any creativity oozed out in various hobbies I engaged in rather than formal training.
