HILARY BELL

Hilary Bell has a scientific background and came to textiles through dressmaking, patchwork and quilting. After a workshop in machine embroidery a new world of stitch and design was opened up to her and she began to develop a variety of textile skills and completed a City and Guilds Diploma in "Creative Design - Stitch Textiles" in 2007.

She is particularly interested in felting, dyeing and printing on fabric - processes that she finds continually fascinating.

Hilary loves teaching and sharing her skills with others - her aim is to help people to explore their own creativity and come away with the confidence and ability to create something of which they can feel truly proud.
