Academy of Independent Parchment Craft Tutors

Meet the team...



Pat and Linda have been active in the parchment craft world for more than fifteen years and have a wealth of knowledge between them. Their qualifications and certificates cover every parchment technique and they have attended numerous workshops and exhibitions both in the UK and overseas.

Pat is a qualified Pergamano tutor. She is a committed teacher and a great organiser and has been at the helm of Parchment craft exhibitions for many years. She still continues to organise the only successful UK parchment craft exhibition which takes place at Bristol Temple Meads each year (Bristol Parchment Craft Exhibition). She is co-founder of the Association of Parchment Crafters and Fellow of the Parchment Craft Guild of which she has held the position of Chair. Pat is well known for her painting skills and 3D flower making and is competent in all aspects of the craft.

Linda is a Pergamano Master Teacher and a Fellow of the Parchment Craft Guild of which she too has held the position of Chair. She has a passion for designing and has written four parchment craft books, three M series and has also designed for several craft magazines. Her workshops are always popular and she has taught in The Netherlands, France and Italy. She is the resident teacher at the Bristol Parchment Craft Exhibition, where she runs interesting and informative workshops for the visitors.

At Bristol this year, Pat and Linda joined forces to run a workshop for the teachers and demonstrators. This was a great success and was also attended by many overseas teachers.

This joint venture between Pat and Linda has been in the pipeline for some time now. They believe that they can help new candidates to become teachers who will have a well-balanced knowledge of basic techniques, which will provide a solid foundation for the future learning and building of skills.

They hope that you will join them on this journey in order to promote the craft, ensure its success, and encourage new teachers and to facilitate the growth of the organisation. They cannot do this alone and it is your support that will make this possible.
