Quilt artist. Quilt workshops.

I am a Quilt artist and I teach Quilting. The art I exhibit is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing and quilting textiles. My work as a textile artist has gained me recognition and awards. As a Quilt artist, I take artistic inspiration from many sources including the natural world, politics, news and history.

I run quilting workshops and courses and I give talks and quilting workshops to Quilting groups. Individuals can have ‘one to one’ quilting workshops with me. Each summer I run a short season of one and two day workshops, teaching a variety of practical quilting skills and approaches.

One and Two day Workshops in Patchwork & Quilting
April to June 2016 Appropriate for all ability levels.

Beginner Quilt with Dorothy Russell

I will take you step by step through each stage and by the end of the course you will have a lovely quilt approximately 38 inches x 50 inches (96cm x 127cm). You will also have a whole set of new skills which will prepare you to step out on your own into the world of patchwork and quilting.

I find that my groups are made up of lovely, interesting people who get on well together. We all agree the social aspect is very important.

Sessions are on Thursdays and run from 10:00 to 16:00
