Over the years, Gill has attended many workshops, often with the who’s who of the international felting world, including Jorie Johnson, Marjolein Dalinga, Alexander Pillin and Jeanette Appleton. Gill has been teaching workshops since 2002 and has introduced hundreds to the joys of felt-making and the versatilities of handmade felt. Gill designs and makes one of a kind accessories which she sells through various handmade craft shop and galleries.
