Classes for 2020-2021. Welcome to this website which showcases the work of the Patchwork & Quilting students I teach in the Bristol and South West area. Classes are currently cancelled due to the Corona virus pandemic, but now that government restrictions are beginning to ease, I am confident that by September, classes can resume again. I have therefore updated the course information for each class.

There are some significant changes! I am continuing the leisure classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students, but at a different venue which is exciting. The City and Guilds courses, which I’ve loved teaching, are being phased out, but I am proposing to teach a series of one-year courses based on the same principles ie learning design skills to generate ideas for making original items. I’ll also teach a ‘post-graduate’ leisure class for City & Guilds students who want to carry on learning and developing new skills (full details on all courses can be obtained through the ‘Courses’ link above and for brief info with dates and costs, please click on the links below).

Exhibition News – alas there will be no exhibition this year but I have been using the time to update the galleries of students’ work. This takes ages, so please be patient if some take awhile to update!

Galleries – click on the first thumbnail picture and follow the arrows to scroll through each Gallery.
For booking forms & to check availability of places, please contact me via the ‘Contact’ link above.

Links – there are links to other artists mentioned on the website. The majority of work featured has been designed by students and myself, but where work has been inspired by books and workshops, the authors have been credited and ‘links’ created to their websites, where you can find more information                                                                                                                                          

I hope you enjoy exploring some of the inspirational items students have created – they never cease to amaze me! It’s a privelage to teach such enthusiastic students – we have a lot of fun!! If you’d like to join us, I look forward to hearing from you!
