Hi, thanks for stopping by.
I’m Coralie, a quilt maker and textile artist. I specialise in patchwork quilting with an emphasis on colour play. I’m interested in modern quilting and use colour and negative space, drawing inspiration from a huge range of sources including music, urban architecture and my travels. My departure from traditional styles combines an age old art form with a modern twist that fits right into today’s homes.
Away from textiles, I’m passionate about other art disciplines despite a lack of expertise. I have produced slightly mediocre paintings, thrown a wobbly clay pot and carved a crooked wooden spoon. My continued learning and experiences as a beginner has driven my enthusiasm for teaching others.
I’m an experienced workshop leader, helping adults with sewing machine techniques and delivering creative workshops to young people disengaged from mainstream education. I find huge satisfaction in encouraging others to explore their own creative ideas in a very hands-on way that offers a gentle antidote to the pressures of the digital age.
I would be delighted to take on freelance opportunities and commission work so do get in touch if there is something I can help with.
You can read an interview on the Folksy blog with me where I discuss my inspiration and the importance of craft in today’s world.
