Joy Salvage Talks & Workshops


I am available to give talks and workshops to groups and guilds. I live in South Gloucestershire, but am willing to travel anywhere! Below is some more detailed information. Get in contact with me via the contact page to book/enquire and find out about prices.

Talk title: ‘An Obsession with Log Cabin’

Talks usually last around 1.5 hours but can be lengthened or shortened to fit your needs.

My talks are a visual tour through my work, including kniting, embroidery and patchwork through real life quilts and samples focusing on my Log Cabin series. No slides/projector are used.

I encourage questions and handling of samples and quilts and am more than happy for people to feel the work and take photos.


  • Miniature Log Cabin. Create your very own mini quilt using a quick strip piecing method. These can be adapted into needle cases, bags and lots of other fun projects.
  • Fabric covered book making. Create your own personalised sketchbook covered in fabric complete with a hand stitched spine. Makes a fantastic present or special keepsake.
  • Eco and rust dying workshop. Play around with rust dying using different mordants. Print using natural dyes and foraged materials to create a unique fabric piece.
