Charlotte is a quilter and textile artist. She is deeply inspired by the unique flora and fauna of NZ and by trying to capture the distinctive colours that surround her. Charlotte colours her own cloth with dye or paint, then cuts, layers and quilts. She is also a teacher, writer, speaker, quilt judge, blogger and podcaster.
My classes have a focus on working with silk organza - from colouring it with dye or paint, using it in applique or whole cloth overlays.
I also teach botanical printing, fabric dyeing and positive/negative applique.
Classes evolve and new classes are developed regularly, so please contact me.
I am regularly asked to judge quilt shows within New Zealand.
I completed the quilt judging skills seminar by Jeannie M. Spears in 2007. I have an Advanced diploma and Graduate diploma in Visual art and a Certificate in Maori art specialising in raranga (flax weaving).
I live in Wellington, New Zealand and I teach a range of quilting and surface design classes for groups, quilt shops and for Toi Whakaari, the National Drama School. My classes include machine quilting, sashiko and boro stitching, fabric dyeing, painting and printing, improvisational piecing and bojagi (Korean inspired piecing).
