We had a fun-filled day and packed A LOT of filming in. It actually surprised me to find that I really enjoyed filming these videos; I’m not a natural-born public speaker, in fact I’ll avoid it if I can which many people find odd and tend to say things like “But you teach, how can you not enjoy public speaking”. I think they’re two completely different things; in public speaking the emphasis is solely on the speaker in a one-way relationship with a role almost as an entertainer, whereas teaching is very much a two-way relationship.
With that in mind I approached this filming as a teacher and rather than being on my own “performing” for the camera, I simply imagined I was teaching a class and talking to students. Hey presto, I was relaxed, calm and didn’t even need a script!!
Watch out for more videos over the next few weeks with lots of useful sewing technique tutorials.
The book is out on the 25th October (less than 5 weeks!) and you can pre-order your copy here. I hope you enjoy the video.
PS. for all my northern friends in the UK, I had no idea my accent had morphed so much, I’ve no idea what’s happened to it and my beloved Grandad who after I’d lived in Brighton for around 5 years accused me of “talking all lah di dah” would be choking on his tea……
