Paula Templeman: Textile Artist

Purchased the fabric on a Friday and was wearing the garment on the Saturday evening……such was Paula’s introduction to sewing.

She completed a four year City and Guilds course in Creative Embroidery a Windsor and Maidenhead College in Berkshire UK, and subsequently helped the Fashion Design students at Berkshire College of Art and Design with their creative projects.

Arriving in Australia in 1990, Paula worked in the buying office of a large department store in Perth and after moving to Melbourne, decided to follow on into patchwork as a way of meeting like minded people.

Paula has been cutting up and re purposing perfectly good fabric ever since!
