About Christine

CHRISTINE CHESTER MA PGCE

I am a practising and exhibiting textile artist who makes work focussing on memory, identity, loss and absence, using mixed media techniques to generate fractured imagery that expresses some of the confusion surrounding dementia.
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. We repeated that experience with The Button Box exhibition at Festival of Quilts 2018.

In 2019 I successfully entered work into the Vlieseline Fine Arts Textile Award at FOQ, and have 2 works in the travelling Quilt Art exhibitions: ‘Material Evidence’ and ‘Traces’.

  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.
