My name is Trish Wykman. Ed and I moved to this beautiful island in July 2016. After living and playing along the breathtaking D’Entrecasteaux Channel for 18 months we moved into our newly-built home, with dedicated textile studio, during Easter 2018. An exciting and momentous milestone in our lives!

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 awaits us all! Currently, you’ll find me in the studio working on my own projects and in a little while I’ll be holding classes from there too.

I’m excited and looking forward to meeting you. Feel free to be in touch if you’re curious about the classes.
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.
