In 2012, Cassandra won the Clothworkers' Foundation/ Cockpit Arts award, granting her studio space and access to modern looms and weaving equipment in Deptford, London. It was during this time that she further developed her interest in combining craft and weaving techniques with a variety of materials and began her textile design studio, Cassandra Sabo Designs.

After to moving to Oxford in 2013, Cassandra focused on private client commissions until a larger studio at Makespace Oxford became available and the seeds to The Oxford Weaving Studio became a reality.
