Marion CurtisI have interests in many forms of textiles including weaving and bobbin lace. I taught art and design technology for over 30 years and more recently I have concentrated on my own design work and working to commission. I would describe myself as a ‘Modern Quilter’ where old designs are invigorated with contemporary fabrics. Opening my studio to the public every year through Cambridge Open Studios, I am an active member of Cambridge Quilters and I often give talks and run workshops. With my art and design background, I feel very confident that I can draw out the ‘designer’ in you!
