  • Descrição

    Hi! I’m Hannah, a recent graduate with a degree in textile design, and I am currently taking some time to travel and gain work and life experience. I have recently participated in two month-long projects which focussed on cultural sustainability, traditional skills and rural development in Cyprus and Santorini with Grampus Heritage. I have also worked in a hostel in Denmark through WORKAWAY. I loved the experience of living and working abroad and being able to immerse myself in the different lifestyle and culture and want to do it again!

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    With a Bachelors Degree in Textile Design, I have built up wealth of creative skills, including embroidery, sewing, weaving, digital and screen printing, crocheting, knitting, fabric dyeing, drawing, painting, and woodwork. I also have a high level of IT software experience in Adobe, Google and Microsoft.

    In May 2022 I spent a month living and working in a hostel in Bornholm, Denmark. In this role I did general cleaning, setting up bedrooms for guests, and painted a mural.

    Last year, I completed a Grampus placement in Cyprus - ‘Putting Traditional Skills into Fashion for Cultural Sustainability’. On the placement I gained experience in mural painting, mosaics, ceramics, pottery, icon painting, felting, crocheting, and lace making. More recently I went to Santorini for a similair project, where I did pottery and wood workshops, museum archiving and artefact preservation. These projects greatly helped improve my sense of initiative, ability to appreciate different cultures, and cooperate in a team.

    I have also been working in customer services since 2015. My current job as a customer services assistant for East Lothian Council involves many responsibilities, mainly handling large amounts of cash and serving customers on a day-to-day basis. When working on the reception I am the first face customers see so I always need to look friendly and approachable and use my initiative when dealing with many different situations. This job also requires a great amount of teamwork within the small team at the cash desks or library, as well as the larger team of people working within the building.

    I have also worked in hospitality serving customers and guests, working on the till and coffee machine, as a waitress and as a kitchen porter. I worked as part of a large team and was responsible for checking stock levels and on occasion was given the role of acting supervisor. This involved training new staff, delegating work within the team, setting up in the morning, and closing up at the end of the day.

    During school, I completed both the bronze and silver duke of Edinburgh award schemes, and so have lots of experience in team building, walking long distances, wild camping, and map reading.
