Here are some bad pictures from workshops I have run,  work is mostly by students.  My instagram is @rdeborman, I think I may retire this blog. I will make a website one day. See @birdsmouthstudio instagram for our art and ceramics studio where we have lots of new classes coming up in September.

Birdsmouth Silk Quilt

Well I can honestly say I've never worked so long on any one piece before but here is my first quilt. The colours are even better in real life. I am very proud of this as I really never believed I could do the whole thing myself. It it made of appliqued and embroidered hand dyed silk pieces. The printed / painted silks are made using cut paper and pressed grasses. Available now at The New Craftsmen

Oysters to Earthstars.. new cushions inspired by fungi, church prayer cushions and quilting histories
