About Me /

Below you can find more information about what I do.


It was Naomi’s love of soft furnishings and upholstery from the age of 18 which moved her to get a qualification in the subjects that she enjoyed so much. Trained at South Nottingham College to City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in both upholstery and soft furnishing she was nominated for a City & Guilds Gold Medal of Excellence achieving a Highly Commended Certificate in upholstery. She then went on to get a level 3 teaching qualification so that she could share her experience and enthusiasm with others. Further qualifications followed as she enrolled on an Interior Design course at the locally based National Design Academy.


Naomi was now equipped to give help and advice to clients on colour schemes, room layout and how to make the most of their home and garden. Working closely with her husband they have completed many projects from simple re decoration to kitchen and bathroom remodelling, full house renovation and extending the living area into the garden with a spacious decking area.

Going Forward

Following a 12 year teaching career at South Nottingham / Central College Nottingham where she worked in both Adult Education and the Creative Techniques department, Naomi began teaching privately at the All Things Crafty Studio with Janet Merryweather and Deirdre Robbins. A recent change of premises has brought a change of name to All Things Creative as well as more space, extended teaching timetable light, airy and modern surroundings, private parking and the opportunity to rent the space to other tutors / instructors. For more information on anything mentioned please contact Naomi.
