Jane Rowland

I am strongly influenced by all things African - never tiring of the colours, textures and designs found in the landscape and wild life; the people, and their decoration, symbols and mark-making.

I prefer working with natural fibres and fabrics, dyeing and printing as a base for creative stitching and quilting, and have recently worked with African wax prints. In 2010, it was very exciting to have 2 pieces of my work included in the book  "African Wax PrintA Textile Journey by Magie Relph & Robert Irwin.


My kimono made from indigo-dyed recycled tea-bags won first prize and the Amateur Award in the Quilt Creations section at the Festival of Quilts (NEC) 2008, and I have also exhibited with Sindano (Bury St Edmunds) and Uphill Artists (Weston-super-Mare).


As a member of the Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers I enjoy the challenge presented by a fleece for spinning and felting.


Over the last 2 years I have been learning to weave at Summer School in Cottenham, and I am excited by the idea of strip weaving and the use of various materials to create texture.
