Jan Beadle designs and makes contemporary woven textiles for fashion, interiors and accessories. She will be exhibiting beautiful scarves and wraps, and small items for the home. She experiments with different weave structures to see how they distort when manipulated and felted.
She is a member of the Wool Clip, a co-operative of local craftspeople based at Caldbeck in North Cumbria and organisers of Woolfest in Cockermouth.
As well as selling her work in many galleries around the UK, Jan runs specialist weave courses for a wide range of abilities, some being held at The Hearth Centre.
