Interview with Hilary Beattie - Textile Artist
Classes with Hilary Beattie • Educational, G, 01-Jan-2017
In this interview with Hilary (who is an awarded winning textile artist and quilter) we get to learn what inspires Hilary, how important it is for her to be creative and interestingly enough how she feels we should all allow ourselves ‘play time’ and also for some of us to give ourselves permission to be ‘messy and creative’ !
