Working as an art teacher in Cullen in 1930s by Margaret Fearnley

Margaret was born 99 years ago in 1913, She wanted to become an art teacher so she went to Dundee Art College in the early 1930s for four years to train in drawing, painting, textile design and a little sculpture. She started teaching at Cullen Junior Secondary school in 1935 where she met her husband, also a teacher but of Science. When war broke out teaching was a protected profession so she did not have to join up. She married in 1940 and stopped teaching. In the 1940s there were lots of shops in Cullen. She made her own clothes until very recently.
