Take one person who, at the age of twenty five was moved when viewing an exhibition of antique quilts, and mix it with her art school practice of drawing, colour, line, and abstraction. Stir in a passion for cloth, stitching and making, together with a love of the rural landscape, the natural world and the spirituality of a special place, and you begin to get a picture of my textile artwork now. Many influences have come and gone, however, over the forty plus years, quilt making still moves me!!

I make unique, special, “one-off”, individual quilts, wall hung textiles, creating my own visual language in fabric.

I have exhibited worldwide, and my work has been purchased by the major museums of the UK and major USA collections.

Our next STUDIO VISITS are on 20th & 21st May 2023, at Allanbank Mill Steading. This is a good chance to see quilts on display, which can be purchased. Or, please contact to arrange an appointment, at other times.

Please take a look at this 4 minute video - recording the making of my recent quilt "Re-told Stories: Pitt Rivers Legacy" - with music by Helena Torpy & Steve Turner.

I have been nominated to be part of the HOMO FABER GUIDE – This is an exciting new world-wide guide of Master Artisan’s. Please search for ‘Pauline Burbidge’ in the UK.
