Colour and Cloth classes are hosted and taught by Christine Boyle. Her mum taught her how to sew when she was six, and she's been sewing ever since... that's a long time! She has taught over 1000 students in colleges, community groups, individual tuition and mentoring. From 8 to 85 years young, and all level of abilities, Christine teaches with patience, enthusiasm, and passion. As well as teaching she designs and makes costumes for many productions ranging from carnival, circus, theatre, film and television. She is credited as Costume Maker on series 1-4 of HBO Game of Thrones. Previous students have set up their own business, gone on to Central St Martins to study fashion, and pursued career paths in Costume. Angeline Murphy from The Great British Sewing Bee Series 4 was once one of Christine's dressmaking students!
