A TEDX talk

If you are in (or near) Edinburgh this Saturday, perhaps you’d like to come and hear me speak at Herriot-Watt’s TEDX event? The focus is “breaking barriers” and I’m going to be talking about brain injury, craft, and creativity alongside some other really interesting speakers. The event is at the Caledonian Hotel on the corner of Princes St / Lothian Road, and costs just £15. Tickets are available here . Perhaps I’ll see some of you there? If you can’t make it, the talk is being filmed, so I should be able to share it with you later.

Because you’ll want to know: the beautiful embroidered brain is the work of Chara Dimopoulou, and I feel immensely honoured to be able to feature it on the cover of my forthcoming memoir, Handywoman, which will be published this May. You can see more of Chara’s work in her Etsy store.
