When Janet started her textile business, her enthusiasm was such that Lee could not help but get the bug.
He has taught many basic weaving classes to individuals and at public events.
In his wee workshop, Lee manufactures weaving frames, including our now famous Dinky Loom #lovemydinky, peg looms, weaving sticks, scarf looms, hand spinning spindles, blending boards and occasionally has time to fix things around the house!
He also manages this website and processes the shop purchases.
Lee started his career in specialist civil engineering and in builders merchants, becoming Manager of Keyline in Ayr.
Following redundancy and then 5 years as a roads surveyor, Lee helped Janet convert their former cow byre into a shop and café. After selling their business 'The Byre' and moving home, Lee continued to support Janet with Create With Fibre but also had various employment. This included:
Advice & Guidance work for Community Education, helping adults find further education, training and employment;
Training Officer for Unity Enterprise, helping teenagers with learning difficulties to achieve a City & Guilds certificate and in finding employment;
Access work, assisting teenagers through the Get Ready for Work programme;
Advocacy work, helping adults with learning disabilities or mental health issues;
Classroom Assistant in a school department for kids with learning difficulties;
Support Worker for Turning Point assisting adults with learning difficulties to improve their lives in the community.
After a stint as a part-time professional Handyman, Lee went full-time into Create With Fibre.
Lee has also been involved in Red squirrel conservation and in the National Orchard Inventory.
He is a keen photographer, environmentalist, budding natural historian, and loves getting away in their small campervan. With Janet, they enjoy being a WOOF host and working in their polytunnel and garden.
Lee also enjoys a bit of cycling (as well as Janet!), hill-walking and reading.
Having adopted 3 kids in amongst all the foregoing, we are now also proud grandparents x3!
