Judith Balchin



I am a textile artist inspired by our native land. I am best known for creating miniature scenes of New Zealand using textiles, threads, paint and paper, machine and hand embroidery.

I belong to a quilting club and an embroidery guild and have exhibited in New Zealand, winning exhibitions both regionally and nationally – the latest being in 2021.

Although you need to learn the basics, my work has never been traditional. This past year I’ve been making work using unusual materials. Recently I have developed an interest in printing and book binding.
