Heather Martin
A member of Bath Textile Artists for around 25 years, I joined when my specialism was embroidered and decorated original clothing. I produced one off garments to commission, and still do so occasionally.

Now, the items I produce tend to be wall-hung artwork, using a range of textile techniques, including hand and machine stitch, paint and print.

Themes are wide ranging and ideas spring from personal research, travel and the local environment. I have lead a number of community projects and worked in many schools as artist –in – residence. Currently I also teach drawing in adult education classes.
