Award-winning textile artist Donna Cheshire develops distinct collections using stitch, appliqué and hand dyed fabrics, with the natural environment a continuing inspiration.
She studied textile design to Masters level, specialising in printed textiles for interiors and, while she still hand colours fabrics for her work, she has found her metier as a freelance textile artist, developing her passion for appliqué and free machine stitch.
Donna runs workshops for the public, in hospitals, with adults with learning disabilities and in schools. She loves encouraging others to have fun with textiles and get creative. Donna is also happy to take commissions from individuals and organisations.
