More about Helen Deighan:

As a professional textile artist, I’ve been making quilts since 1984.

Initially working from existing patterns, I soon started developing my designs. And, when I couldn’t find the right colour or shade to fit – I dyed my own.

Over the past ten years, I’ve created many exciting dyeing effects using everyday household objects – from cat litter trays and drain pipes to my now famous plastic freezer bags!

My latest passion is designing and making textile coil pots.

In January 2002, I opened my new studio in rural Hampshire. Its purpose-built for both dyeing and sewing, with plenty of light and space – the perfect environment for my classes and workshops.
