Jacqueline HilsonTextile Artist/ workshop provider at Jacqui Hilson Textiles
I am a textile artist working and living in the Walkley area of Sheffield. I create textile pieces/ paintings using Reverse Applique. I also make velvet-backed throws using yarn with a high wool content.
I deliver textile workshops (these can be private ones in your home or for groups), I also do talks and demonstrations
My journey to becoming a textile artist has not taken the usual route, as I am largely self- taught. For me it is about finding a way to get the images that are in my head out into the public domain.
I have never understood what people have meant when they have told me it isn't 'always about me'. It is ALWAYS 'about me' - my response to colour, my response to texture. My hope is that it will ALSO strike a chord with others.
