Patricia Sutton

Patricia Sutton works with creative, phenomenological and auto/ethnographic methodologies to explore wellbeing, bullying, gender inequities & creativity. With a background in education, both in mainstream primary settings and for a national charity, she has recently trained as a child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor. Since her studies at the University of Cambridge, composing her post-graduate thesis ‘Crafting Connections: an exploration of the experience of being bullied and subsequent wellbeing,’ she founded Connection Through Crafting. This is a community crafting group, that aims to support the wellbeing of its members, while offering gestures of kindness to others. Tricia is also a Trustee of the Cambridge-based educational charity, Civilisations in Contact.


During the lockdown, Sutton put her skills to make scrubs for those in desperate need, but she didn’t quite realise the enormity of the task she had decided to undertake.
