Studio outlook to the Wellington Ranges
My name is Trish Wykman. Ed and I moved to this beautiful island in July 2016. To date, we’ve been living and playing along the breathtaking D’Entrecasteaux Channel, meeting and making new friends. Now, we’re excited to be moving to the Huon Valley where our newly-built home and dedicated textile studio awaits.
After ten fabulous years of teaching contemporary quiltmaking in the hills of Perth, Western Australia I’m looking forward to sharing with students in southern Tasmania! A north-facing, light-filled, purpose-designed studio in Glen Huon is where you’ll find me very soon… not only will I be working on my own projects but holding classes and teaching others too.

I’m excited… hope you are too!
I look forward to meeting you soon. In the meantime, feel free to be in touch if you’re curious.
Recently we gifted 12 splendid quilts to the children at the local Womens’ Refuge. I feel extremely proud of our achievements this year, the high standard of work produced and the willing support and enthusiasm within the group. A tremendous effort and a marvellous team indeed!

… a splendid team!
A fabulous bundle of children’s quilts (using Jan Mullen’s With Kissez Spread design) were delivered to a local Womens’ Refuge just in time for Christmas.
We completed the year (using the same design but without the kisses:) with a large bundle of small (18″x24″) neonate quilts to gift to both Princess Margaret and King Edward Hospitals.
Welcome to Quilting Matters where we run personalised patchwork and quilting classes to help you develop your skills and techniques. We’re looking forward to working with you… to begin or further your journey with quilts.
A snapshot of classes may be seen at the Classes page. A comprehensive class list will be available soon, closer to when we open the doors in southern Tasmania!
