Tessa’s quilts are made using self-taught traditional needle construction skills. Each piece is composed, cut, appliquéd, quilted and bound by her own two hands.
She sources end-of-line linens and cottons and applies her distinctive use of colour with dyes and paints.
Approached as practical paintings, the works are the result of experimental and sustainable making, produced as one-off pieces or designed and made in limited editions.
