Janet Phillips, Hand Weaver, Fabric Designer and Tutor
I have been designing and weaving for over 30 years after studying industrial Textile Design at the Scottish College of Textiles, graduating with a First Class Honours Degree.
Colour and texture are still the passions that keep me weaving. I dye most of the yarns I use and I am continually experimenting and sampling to find new weaves and textures.
I also have a deep commitment to teaching others to be creative with weave. I teach one-day, weekend and week-long workshops in the UK and internationally.
One to four- day weaving courses are held throughout the year in Janet's studio in Nether Stowey, Somerset. She also teaches occasional classes in Sussex and for Guilds and other groups around the country.
