Claire Johnston


I have a wealth of experience both in education in the design industry. My design background is in Applied Arts and contemporary jewellery design. Having worked in schools as a HOD for Design Technology I have an excellent understanding of the key stage curricula as well as school level expectations of teachers at the ground level. I have been a participant in Design Ventura for 5 years and have previously won the DV teacher of the year award.
