Atelier Quinze

Welcome to our new website. Here you can find details of all of our creative workshops together with some selected products we have for sale. We also have a beautiful boutique for you to visit.

From the tender age of four I was always drawing or painting. Always had a pen in my hand or a bag of coloured crayons close by. It was all I ever wanted to do.  But it wasn't until my late thirties that I decided to take the next step and get a qualification, if only to prove to myself that I had some talent, some creative ability.


In 2003 I left Winchester School of Art clutching my BA (Hons) Textile Design degree wondering what now? In the years that followed I made new friends and contacts across a diverse range of crafts and design as I worked freelance designing weave and surface pattern designs. You can see my woven designs on this site and surface pattern designs HERE.                                                           

When a holiday home in France became my permanent residence, the search began to find suitable premises to open a studio. After some false starts we finally found a lovely building crying out to be restored to its former glory.                              

A double-fronted, three storey complex with the oldest parts dating back to 1850 (as far as we can tell). The ground floor spaces were at times in their history a boulangerie on the left and a photographer's studio on the right (the latter dating to the 1930's).


After six months, the transformation is now complete and the building has been given a new lease of life as Atelier Quinze - the building being number 15. Here I can not only produce my own work but also offer workshops to those seeking to satisfy their own creative interests. I also have a lovely boutique where you can buy a range of goods, all hand made at the studio.

My background is not only textiles but other creative activities, and I can't wait to share my experience and enthusiasm for all things 'make'! So, if you would like to learn a new creative skill, or to simply join with others to have a social get together and make new friends, please get in touch.
