Fran Focolini

Fran Focolini

Workshop Facilitator

‘I have a background in fashion/textile design , having gained initial experience working for clothing brands i have dedicated  the last ten years to developing my own label as well as supporting emerging designers via my previous independent London store Labour of Love. 
Along the way I have also enjoyed giving talks to design students at colleges and universities on how to go about setting up their own design initiatives.
More recently my interest has shifted to working within the community, in particular with children and I was very lucky to be given the opportunity to start exploring this  through volunteer work with Art4Space last September. I currently assist on the Why Art Matters programmes and hope to be able to work on some of the outreach programmes in the future.’
