Tutor – Debby Bird
Subject/s: Textiles – Embroidery, Knitting, Crochet and Felt Making
I am an experienced teacher and textile artist having taught for over 30 years.
I have had many exhibitions with my textiles and mixed media work worked as an artist in residence.
I love colour and use layers and exquisite details in my pictures and embroidered jewellery which I sell in the UK and abroad.
For relaxation I love knitting and crochet, the rhythmic movements and use of colourful and textural yarns allow me to be creative and give me a sense of wellbeing.
