Hello and welcome to my website!

Blog image of Debbie Tomkies, owner of DT Craft & Design and Making Futures, in her dye studioIt is always difficult when someone asks what I do for a living since there are many strands to my creative work (or I have fingers in many pies as some have said!).

Above all I see myself as a passionate lover of textiles – whether that is as a learner, educator, researcher, collector, sharer or maker I’ll happily talk textiles ‘til the cows come home and beyond.

Here I share some of the facets of my textile practice. Feel free to have a nosy around and see what inspires me and explore what I can do to inspire you and/or the people you work and play with.

Live life in colour!
