About Us

CHRISTINE CHESTER MA PGCE

I am a practising and exhibiting textile artist who makes 2 strands of work.

1. Personal Body of Work focussing on memory, identity and loss, using mixed media techniques to generate fractured imagery that expresses some of the confusion surrounding dementia.

2. Couture Quilts & Hangings, mostly made to commission, for special people on their special occasions.

I have also been teaching textiles for many years, and enjoy developing the design aspect of projects with students, as well as teaching the more practical  stitching and colouring skills. I have delivered City & Guilds to Diploma (the old Part 2) level in both Embroidery and Patchwork & Quilting.

2015 saw me complete my Masters with Distinction, have a gallery at Festival of Quilts, join Quilt Art as their newest exhibiting member, and in 2016 I was part of the very successful unFOLD exhibition at the Knitting & Stitching Shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate International Centre.

I am a practising and exhibiting artist specialising in Natural History subjects.

My work takes two forms:

1 Mixed media semi-figurative imagery, exploring our attitudes to animals and our relationships with them. My main interest within this area is our very close and ambiguous kinship with apes, where we tread that very thin line between ape and human.

2 High quality more figurative (realistic) wildlife work, using pencil, mixed media, acrylic, ink and Monoprint.

I have 26 years’ experience teaching all age groups (from 6 to 96!) a wide range of arts subjects, both in FE and privately.

I have taught numerous certificate and leisure courses, and am currently teaching private groups almost exclusively. My passion is teaching drawing, particularly focusing on left and right brain functions and how they affect our visual perception.

  1. I recently spent two days at Christine’s studio studying on Caroline Bartletts retreat Heat Setting Geometric Forms. Caroline is an extremely knowledgeable tutor who introduced us to a variety of techniques yet enabled us to develop a personal approach. The studio is in a fantastic location, the lunches delicious and Christine’s attention to detail second to none, I would highly recommend studying here.

  2. Just spent a wonderful week’s Re-Treat at Studio 11 with Lesley Morgan exploring colour and layering on fabric. Thoroughly absorbing and stimulating. Big thanks to Lesley and Christine.

We welcome comments about our courses, ideas for new courses, and experiences of existing ones:
