Melanie Radoja


IBR Form Tutor

After leaving school, I completed a two year Fashion and Textile Diploma course, as well as A level English and Textiles, then a one year Art Foundation Course.  My degree was actually a Science degree: BSc Textile and Knitwear Technology at Leicester Polytechnic, with a special Design option.

I intended to go into industry straight after this, but instead set up a fashion company: Style Trap, with the help of a number of small business awards.  Later, I completed a one year PGCE Teacher Training Course and worked in the UK and Africa teaching Textiles and Art.  My family and I were attracted to Bratislava and the British International School because of the central European location and the warm, friendly atmosphere. 

I am a designer and have worked for many years designing garments, from knitwear and men and women’s outerwear, to bridal wear and children’s wear.  I also love textile work, especially heavily textured pieces, using unusual materials.  My passion lies with throw-away materials such as tea bags, tetra packs and plastic bags.  Recently, I have been working on making collections of handbags, by hand spinning plastic into yarn.  I would love to create a sustainable business for underprivileged groups of peoples.    

What the students say about me 

Mrs Radoja can develop any idea further and teaches us every aspect and viewpoints of Art.  Most of her students produce high quality work after only a few months of preparation.  (Year 11 IGCSE student)

Mrs Radoja is a great art teacher who obviously knows what she is doing.  She encourages creativity and helps you when you are stuck on a project.  (Year 8 student)

Mrs Radoja is a great art teacher and I can learn well from her.  I can understand everything and she gives a lot of help when I need it. (Year 8 student)

Mrs Radoja is very good at Art and encourages us to make more creative work.  She is great!
