Jane Freear-Wyld lives in Coventry, England where she creates one-off, hand-woven tapestries and limited edition paper print weaves. She says: “I fell in love with weaving at teacher training college in the early 1970s. Until 2006 I taught art in Coventry’s Specialist Arts College, when I resigned to spend more time on my weaving. I regularly exhibit both in the UK and internationally, mainly in the USA and Europe.” Jane uses digital photography extensively as part of the design process for both her tapestries and her works on paper. In the workshop, she will show her methods for designing. “I find the manipulation process totally absorbing, and am amazed by how an image can be so completely transformed.” She will also demonstrate several tapestry techniques she uses.
