As a textile practitioner Frances works within the contemporary craft area and strives to create textile products that demonstrate innovation in their design and excellence in their making. As a Lecturer in Design, she believes making processes that combine innovation and excellence are integral to the students learning, both through the challenges encountered within the physical making process and the revelations that manifest themselves through working or reflecting on the process or the finished object. She is particularly interested in the making process and the importance of maintaining ‘creative buoyancy’ as a designer/maker, ultimately raising questions concerning why making and learning through making still matters from a personal, educational, cultural and economic perspective.
