Hi, I'm Dian, I am a teacher of Patchwork and Quilting, Art, Embroidery, Beading, Lacemaking and more. I am originally from Surrey but now live in Swansea, South Wales. My workshop/classroom at the end of my garden is my haven and I am very luck to have the luxury of space although I have somehow managed to fill most of it. My work covers every aspect of patchwork and quilting from large (10'6" square) bed quilts traditionally pieced to tiny pictorial postcard size miniatures, from chenille teddies to silk evening bags and all stops in between. Kantha, Mola, Trapunto, Applique, pieced and foundation pieced, I make them all. However, my favourite must be freestyle and painted quilts, layering and stitching until you achieve the effect you want.
I do workshops on various things including 'free motion quilting for the terrified', chenille, trapunto, lovely bags made out of old jeans and impressionist 'painting'with fabric and thread.
