A Future and a Hope (detail)
Classes for 2023-2024. For Patchwork & Quilting enthusiasts, classes are continuing at my new studio here at Mole End, North Somerset (about 1/2 hour from Bristol). It’s wonderful to have everything to hand – books, resources, a lovely big pin-wall and a table for layering up big quilts. Plus there’s plenty of on-site parking! I’m winding down the City & Guilds courses I’ve taught for 25 years and concentrating now on short (or long-term) leisure classes. There is no set prgramme, people can choose what they want to learn and I teach topics as requested. There are courses to suit all levels of ability from beginner to advanced.
The Beginner’s class is on Saturdays (monthly) to suit those who work and covers a wide range of essential techniques to enable those new to the craft to get to grips with the basics and make a quilt. There are lots of examples on the website of sampler quilts made by absolute beginners.

If you’d like to discuss learning a particular topic either individually or as a group, then please email me through the website (the contact details are above).
Exhibition News – we’ve not had our own exhibition since the venue at UWE in Bristol was turned into a ‘Nightingale’ hospital during the pandemic. But it was great to see students exhibit work at Quilts UK in Malvern and the Festival of Quilts at the NEC. There’ll be more to see at the Craft4Crafters show at Shepton Mallet this autumn.
Galleries – please click on the first thumbnail picture and follow the arrows to scroll through each Gallery. Updating the galleries is on the cards – its just finding the time to do it!
For booking Forms & check availability of places – please contact me through 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 author has been credited and ‘links’ created to their websites.
I hope you enjoy browsing through the inspirational items students have created – they never cease to amaze me! It’s a privilege to teach such enthusiastic students – we have a lot of fun! If you’d like to join us, just get in touch!
