I have always loved art and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember! I had already done a correspondence course with the Open College of Arts on Art and Design covering topics such as painting, drawing, sculpture, graphics and textiles and it was the inspiration of my tutor, Jane de Sausmarez, that encouraged me to look around for a structured textiles course. I completed my City and Guilds Level 2 Textile Decoration course in 2009 at Missenden Abbey and since then have been experimenting with many different techniques, such as space-dyeing, ice-cube dyeing, shibori and indigo dyeing. Take a look at my samples on the following pages. 

I like to take my fabric dyeing further by block printing and embellishing with hand stitching, beading and sequins. Further details below.

 My passion is passing on my knowledge and expertise, inspiring others to create their own unique designs.

I run independent block printing and fabric dyeing workshops to small groups of adults and children, either for parties or recreation. Details can be found on the Workshops page. 

‚ÄčA new workshop date has been added for 2-4pm on Sunday 27th September 2020 at Wycombe Museum.  Please book direct with the museum. 


Other dates for block printing, fabric dyeing and Indian Hand Embroidery will be added as and when they are planned. Please check back regularly.
