About Jane

Jane has been involved in created textiles for many years and her “specialist subject,” is silk. She rears cultivated and wild varieties of silk moth, allowing the moths to emerge as they would in nature. The silk from the broken cocoons is hand spun and used as accent yarns in her weaving. Dyeing the majority of the yarns and fibres she uses, Jane increasingly returns to natural dyes. Jane has recently begun to spin mulberry paper yarn for use in woven pieces. Exhibiting widely, in the UK and abroad; Jane teaches both for her local Adult and Community Learning service and privately; She is co-author, with Alison Daykin, of Creative Spinning, “a textbook for the 21st century spinner.”
