Our People

Cathy Freeman

Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader

Cathy has a BSc (Hons) in Textile Design and Design Management and a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Practices, as well as industry experience working with clients such as Conran Pacific, Pentagram, American Express, Conde Naste, Mandarin Oriental and designing everything from ceramics, wetsuits, watches, textiles, magazines to packaging.

"For me Design, and particularly Textiles, enriches our everyday life. It incorporates the fantastic sensual qualities of pattern, colour and touch and it can provide an exciting career for any student who enjoys drawing, making and has a discerning eye."

As a tutor Cathy's role is teaching both practical aspects of design and integrating contextual studies, encouraging students' curiosity and a desire to produce intelligent beautiful designs.
