Whilst bringing up a family and teaching, Howard and Pauline continued to produce their own art work. They lived in Sydenham, South London where Pauline taught, mostly at Forest Hill School. She developed the use of pastels and appliqué fabric. Howard experimented with performance and arts-in-education, particularly whilst at the Cockpit Arts Workshop, Marylebone, and at the Tate Gallery. He produced a book ‘An Eye for the Cockpit’ about this work.
Glory Romp was producing fashionable garments, many of which were hand-knits and crochet. This continured after moving from Camberwell to Hartley-Wintney, Hampshire.
