Joanne Haywood has taught since 2002, initially on accredited courses for fine art, fashion and textiles before moving into specialising in the teaching of jewellery design and making. Coordinating the jewellery department at City Lit between 2011-2016, she now works as a freelance educator on a variety of projects and workshops, which have included work at Central Saint Martins, LV21, Morley College and West Dean.

“I encourage each student to find their own personal language in their own work. Material exploration and the excitement of experimenting is an important element of my teaching.”
