My name is Ann Rippin and I run the Pomegranate Studio in Bristol in the South West of England.
Pomegranate Studio exists to encourage people to explore and develop their own creativity through a variety of making workshops. The workshops cover a range of textile and stitching techniques, as well as working with journals and notebooks as a way of thinking about yourself and your life.
I have researched textiles and the people who make them professionally for about twenty years and I have worked with adult students as an academic at the University of Bristol and the West of England for just as long. I have an unshakable belief in everyone’s innate creativity and the therapeutic value of making.
