How I got here – Clare Kay

Interview by James Knowles

Stand-first: Creative pattern cutter for high street manufacturer Coppernob discusses her love for a frenetic workplace. copper_nob

The first thing I do when I get in is make a nice cup of strong builders tea and take ten minutes to get my thoughts straight before I get on with my day’s tasks. We have an open plan workroom at Coppernob with four designers, six pattern cutters and seven machinists, so it is never dull. As suppliers to Tesco, Debenhams and BHS amongst others, it is fast and furious and can get very noisy, so I have to concentrate hard to switch off and focus on my work. It is a great supportive atmosphere, and questions are always encouraged, which is important as we don’t really have a quiet season.
