Welcome to the World of Val Hughes, Textile Artist, Designer and Author.

 

Welcome to my web site where I hope you'll get a flavouof my work and my journey through textiles.   

Just like this site, it's been an exciting and continually evolving process so take a look through the pages and perhaps I can inspire you too!

 You'll also find some information on my workshops - some based locally and some which I offer to Guilds and Groups - just get in touch and I'll check availability.

I also offer workshops in schools and colleges.

This year, 2016, I will be teaching a felt and fibre course at Crafty Retreats in France. We will  use the works of Gustav Klimt and also local landscapes for inspiration. On the week we will be exploring nuno felting, silk papers and stitching to create wall hangings or a scarf and an art journal or notebook.  For more information about the retreat visit craftyretreats.com
