About your teacher:

Claire is a swimwear designer and maker who established Stidston Swimwear in 2016. Stidston Swimwear grew quite organically - Claire struggled to find any good quality swimwear that was ethically made, and not over the £100 mark so in 2016 she made her own swimsuit and Stidston Swimwear grew from one swimsuit, to a hobby, and then to a business. The vision for Stidston Swimwear is to build an affordable and bold brand that represents, and celebrates, all body types, whilst being considerate of humanity and the environment. All Stidston production is UK based and all styles are available in recycled Lycra (an environmentally responsible fabric made from recycled yarn from waste material destined for landfills)
