Mandy Nash set up her workshop in 1983 after leaving the Royal College of Art. In 1990 She established her studio in Model House Craft and Design Centre in Llantrisant. Mandy's three passions are colour, pattern and technique. She loves making things and exploring the possibilities of different materials. Although she trained as a jeweller, Mandy's work has been heavily influenced by both traditional and contemporary textiles.
Much of her recent work has evolved from looking back at her creative ancestry. It was Mandy's grandmothers who initiated her fascination with making objects. They passed on their traditional textile skills and started her passion for creating anything from colourful materials.
