Here is a photo of me at the Ramster Textile Exhibition private view with Jean Hedley. I had an embroidery exhibited there. It was inspired by a watercolour by Jean.
<<< my textile is the lower one.
Textiles & Bobbin Lace will take a back seat for a few weeks. I fell off my bike and have fractured my elbow.
We had a great lace weekend at the new Missenden School of creative arts. This was held at Missenden Abbey. Do check out the courses that they are organising. Photos from the weekend here.
Don't forget that you can access all the forthcoming courses at courses and all the photographs from the courses I teach at the gallery.





Jan & Jean at Ramster



I had a fantastic trip to India. We toured around the golden triangle, Varanasi, Jaisalmer , Udapuir and a tent in the desert. A great experience. Sadly I didn't find any bobbin lace , but I found metres and metres of fabric and embroidered textiles to fill my empty suitcase (brought along especially for my shopping!)

I will be offering a new talk on my Indian travels, particularly focusing on textiles and also offering a new printing day school. check out 'workshops' and 'talks'.

I belong to FIMBRIA. We are a group of Textile Artists. I have been writing a blog about our work.. please visit us at http://fimbria-textiles.blogspot.co.uk/
I am about to update it with photos of all our handmade Christmas cards.

For corrections to my book Torchon Lace Making please click here.

I note that in my travel article in the LACE guild
magazine I suggested accessing my web site for more
photographs of the OIDFA Congress in Ljubljana.
I have started to add them and today you can view
some beautiful lace dresses made by diploma
students at the St Petersburg Higher School of Folk
Arts Institute. They were exquisite and were wearable.
Here is a photograph of one of them.
