Jocelyn Miller

Jocelyn Miller has been enthusiastic about 'make-and-do' crafts since she was little and and as a teenage babysitter was very keen to devise fun projects for her charges. She has also worked with children at summer holiday schools. Through this experience she has grown very aware of the need for crafts to be simple enough for everyone to get a result and open-ended enough to allow for exuberant creativity.
