Commissioned Artist – Sarah Appleton
After having worked as a CAD technician in Wales for several years, Sarah relocated to Dorset and retrained on the Arts University Bournemouth Textiles BA (Hons) course. Since graduating in 2016, she has exhibited her work in London, Birmingham and across Dorset as well as running an online store and blog. She regularly teaches children’s craft classes and has previously volunteered at the New Carnival Company in Ryde, where she discovered a love for all things carnival! Sarah is thrilled to be working with DOCA and the lead artists involved with this year’s carnival celebrations.
