MASTERCLASS ARTIST TUTOR
Christine Chester is an artist and teacher. She enjoys the experience of starting a project with white fabric, adding colour or texture, and then stitch.
Christine loves to work in large scale, hence her journey into quilting from embroidery. She dyes and prints her own fabrics in order to make a range of work that includes personal art work that she exhibits regularly, and bespoke contemporary heirloom quilts.
Christine has been quilting, winning prizes and having work accepted into international shows for many years, with 2015 being a particularly successful year with a solo gallery at the international quilt show Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, focusing on a theme of dementia (The Fragility of Memory) which was really well supported, completion of her Master’s degree from Brighton University, and her acceptance into the prestigious European group of artists: Quilt Art.
"I hope to keep my work fresh, contemporary and vibrant".
