Enjoy work from Roy Dickinson and Pat Deacon in our short ‘encore’ video.
Roy Dickinson a “Man in a Woman’s World”
In 2010 Roy was the only man in the UK to have successfully completed City and Guilds Parts 1&2.
He is well known for his award winning quilts and in this video you get to enjoy several pieces of his work, including the double sided Venetian. Roy likes to work on projects that tell a story and is instersted in using light and shade. Also, as you will see he isn’t afraid of including embellishment in his work. Roy’s quilt “Infinity and Beyond” won in Art and Embellishment categories at the National Patchwork Champsionships at Sandown in 2010.
Pat Deacon – Embroiderer, quilter and teacher
Pat is another City & Guilds graduate and here we get to enjoy quilts in a series entitled ‘Discovering the Rainbow’.
She began her quilting career with traditional piecing and machine quilting. However, Pat very quickly began exploring different techniques and pushing the boundaries. She had always been a ‘doodler’ and with a background in mathematics she began exploring abstract shapes. In particular it was circles and curves. So, you will see that it is the combination of these abstract geometric shapes and bold colours that now characterize her work.
We visited this show back in March 2010.
