Tutor | Gill Collinson

With over ten years’ teaching experience with a variety of classes, Gill has a passion for all things textile and mixed media.  Gill’s educational background is in graphic design and after many years working in the design industry she returned to her first love, textiles. Her own work has a strong basis in natural forms and reflects a truly mixed media approach – incorporating fabric, paper, felt, plastics, stitch, heat tools and anything else with creative potential!
