As a part-time on line TEFL teacher, I am keen to work on line with professional people wishing to improve their English at Intermediate - Advanced levels; developing and delivering online courses, using my excellent English Language and word processing skills. Trinity Certificate TESOL qualified, level 5. I would welcome one-to-one tuition on line, or SKYPE. I am developing courses for my own school website on a MOODLE platform, which will be ready for students soon.
Currently loving fashion making and marketing my ethical patchwork and up-cycled leisure robes; kimonos, jackets, dressing gowns, evening coats, and kaftans, using good quality recycled fabrics. Ethical fashion with recycling is a paramount aim and I am a FELLOWSHIP 500 MEMBER of the Ethical Fashion Forum. My excellent colour mixing and coordinating skills enable me to combine printed and plain fabrics to make a 'new' unique textile design for each garment. Some incorporate my own hand painted silk designs, and more will follow. I use professional steam fixed dyes, and welcome any silk painting projects.

JOB IS NOT COMPLETED, STILL NEED TO FIGURE OUT A DIRECTION.
It took a good while to establish just what the client needed. My first design wasn't exactly what the client had envisaged. This job has been on 'hold' since summer 2011, as client changed the product the design was needed for; also while client refocuses the direction of designs required for products.
