Pete July 5th, 2020

I did the modelling course from 1999 to 2002. Pete & Tamsin were the workshop technicians for my 1st & 2nd year, they were both really cool and we liked them immediately. Pete was the kindest, funniest, most helpful and most patient guy to have as a tutor. I was always nervous about using the circular saw, especially after it spat perspex shards at my hands. I also never could get my head around the "false fence" thing. Pete was aware of this, but was always happy to help me use it, no matter how many times I asked. In my 2nd year, he even made me a jig to help me cut a load of ABS with it. I really missed Pete & Tamsin in my 3rd year, when Pete changed roles and Tamsin left. Pete always knew what to say to lift your spirits when you were up against it, and always had a trick up his sleeve for making, well, anything and everything. I'm deeply saddened that he's no longer with us, sadly the last time I saw him was 2003, but I've always smiled when I've thought about him. If he believed in the afterlife, I hope he's showing the angels his trick with the Polo mint. Pete, here's to you.
