Hello, I'm Val. I make things. All sorts of things. If I don't do something creative every day I get very, very grumpy. Just ask my long suffering family.
My main passions are weaving, sewing, crochet and making jewellery, but I'll give most crafts a go.
I'm a scientist by training, and after finishing my DPhil worked in research in the US and UK for years until I stopped to look after our children. These days I help with science classes at the village primary school for fun.
I live in East Anglia, but dream of mountains.
