Fashion Designer with Masters in Knitwear from Royal College of Art offering tutoring and portfolio support in London

Methodology

I draw on my progressive approach to design in the mentoring of my students and I like to cultivate individual creativity and encourage self expression within the classroom. I strongly believe that building a strong skill base enables students to harness their imagination and turn ideas into tangible pieces. Many of my classes centre around a skill a student already has or would like to build and how that matches with their interests.

I have experience in preparing portfolios for BA and Masters level courses, as well as one to one tutoring for GCSE and A Level exams and Art Foundation students. I also take one to one classes in sewing skills and enjoy working with students to discover their preferred medium to work in.

I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities and I'm happy to tailor my classes towards skills you would like to learn. I am consistently surprised by the students I work with, and have discovered a real passion for sharing my skills as an art-maker throughout my teaching career so far.

Experience

I am an Artist and Designer currently living and working in London, currently completing a Masters in Fashion Knitwear at the Royal College of Art. I have been teaching Art and Design for the last 4 years to students at both primary and secondary level including GCSE and A Level students preparing for University. and have experience in assisting students in preparing portfolios for university.

My specialisms are Life Drawing, Fashion Design and Textiles and I have a real passion for drawing that shines through in all my work. I teach adult classes in Life drawing as well as student workshops in everything from fashion textiles skills to illustration led design work. I enjoy supporting students in finding their design voice and developing their own style within their work.

Perfect! Nicci is a lovely person who was patient and kind with my 13 year old that suffers from anxiety. The lesson went so well that my son was beaming afterwards and so excited with the prospect of more lessons! Do not hesitate to book with Nicci!

Nicci's response

Lexi was very easy to communicate with and supportive of navigating the distancing during this strange period. Had a wonderful first session with Lexi's 11 year old son- very engaged first steps in crocheting, lovely to teach someone with enthusiasm! Looking forward to beginning regular sessions and building on the foundations we have laid.

I’ve known and worked with Nicci for several years; she is highly professional, knowledgeable and skilful. I’ve seen her work with a range of students of varying ages and abilities and she has the best knack at making lessons suitable and enjoyable for everyone. I can’t recommend her enough.

Nicci is an excellent tutor!! She ran an absolutely fantastic ‘natural dyeing at home’ workshop recently! Her friendly and positive energy amplifies her clear and thoughtful sessions. How she presents is clear and structured enabling opportunities to learn, progress and challenge at your own pace.

I was so impressed by how confidently and clearly Nicci delivered her session - her planning was clearly meticulous and she has answers for all my many questions. Most importantly I had so much fun and actually really want to do another class!

Eleanor

I loved the class with Nicci! Such a perfect introduction to natural dyeing, she took us through every step really clearly, in a way that worked with all the different shapes and sizes of everyone's kitchens, fabrics and dye choices! She is so knowlegeable about the craft and fun ways to make gorgeous colours and patterns. Thanks Nicci!!
