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!

“Thank you so much for an amazing year at Cambridge Makers. I find it really hard to settle into places and groups and I feel really welcome, accepted and cared about. The quality of teaching, equipment and space is of a high quality, fit for purpose and is well worth the money. Everything is delivered in such a student/group focused way.”

“I love the cross over between the studio and the workshop. You have kept everything at a high standard but it isn’t intimidating in the slightest. ”
