Esme studied a BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at the College and specialised in Ceramics.
Esme then went on to complete a BA Hons degree in Fine Art at Loughborough University School of Art, concentrating on installation and sculptures. In 2013 Esme started her own business: Scruffy Little Herbert.
Esme saw a gap in the market for products based around local pride, instilling this identity and pride into new generations.
You can purchase a range of Scruffy Little Herbert's products including monochrome tea-towels, bone-china mugs and plates, adult t-shirts and organic cotton baby sleepsuits and vests. See the gallery below for inspiration.
