textile artist, film maker and workshop leader

I am a visual artist working mainly in textiles, based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. My work is mixed media and combines fabric manipulation, paint and stitch. I hold a degree in Fine Art and a City and Guilds in Design and Stitch and have worked for many years in community arts as a project manager and workshop leader using both visual art and drama. I have also created two documentary films including Spirit in Mass – Journey into Sculpure about my father, Alan Thornhill who died in 2020.
