Upcoming Workshops 

Brigitte Giblin


Brigitte Giblin is an Australian quilt designer and teacher who has been making quilts in the naive, antique and traditional styles for over thirty years.Considered one of Australia’s finest designers and teachers, Giblin brings a unique sense of style and an unconventional approach to quiltmaking.

Her well considered designs are inspired by old quilts and reflect her love of fabrics, colour and geometric shapes, as she deftly applies old techniques to  current fabrics. Recreating and capturing the look and feel of antique quilts, her quirky style continues to evolve in response to current fabric trends.

She likes her quilts to be functional, her coverlets utilitarian.

A workshop at Brigitte Gilblin’s studio in Bathurst has been organised –  please be advised that travel to/from this event is not included so you will need to make your own arrangements.
