Who will be teaching? 

Robert (he/they) is a queer engineer. They clearly don’t express enough creativity in their day job so by night goes by their alter ego ‘ART FIEND’.

Robert believes that art is for everyone and focuses value on the process more than the outcome. They love sewing because its tactile nature is really good for mental health and de-stressing.
