Bethie grew up in Belgium learning French and spending a lot of her childhood absorbing natural patterns in nature around her. Constantly collecting and making, she went on study Textiles throughout school, being guided and nurtured by her teacher Margaret Holland & inspired by the likes of William Morris, Henri Matisse, Mark Rothko & many more!
After gaining her undergrad degree in Textiles, Fashion & Fibre from Winchester School of Art, she spent the next decade working for various creative directors, across a range of companies, as a personal and design assistant. This gave her a wealth of knowledge in how to set up and run a business.
With the help and encouragement from the Prince's Trust, Bethie Tricks Textiles was established in 2018 and is going from strength to strength. As a Young Ambassador for the Prince's Trust, Bethie is hugely passionate in helping others to achieve their goals and business dreams.
