Jane is predominantly a textile artist currently working with silk – hand dyeing in a rainbow of colours and also using ecologically sustainable dyeing practices using the native plants indigenous to the locale to dye and print onto silk.  The results are alchemic and individual – no two pieces are the same.

Jane hand makes a variety of notebooks and journals using various techniques.  Expect to find a range of handmade books at the gallery with various covers – exquisite handmade papers, creative mixed media, fabric, local timbers, glass and silk.  Custom orders are welcomed.

Jane is an experienced and engaging tutor and is available for a variety of bookmaking, creative textile and dyeing workshops.  Jane’s workshop “Simply Sewn Books” has been run many times and is a fun, creative workshop that teaches the basics of book making without expensive equipment.  More advanced book structures are taught in “Taped Up”, “Sidebound Books”, “Casebound Books” and “Longstitch/Linkstitch” workshops.

Folios and Fibre  is a treasure trove of books and textiles – you are sure to find an individual and interesting gift either by appointment at Jane’s home studio, at a handmade market in the lower south west or:

  1. Congratulations Jane on your new blog. It’s both interesting and informative. I’m looking forward to keeping up to date with what you’re up to!

  2. Hi Jane

    it was such a pleasure to meet you yesterday and see you work. We were quite blown away by your skills and exquisite creations. I have remembered the song your seamless dress reminded me of:

    Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
    Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
    Remember me to the one who lives there,
    For once she was a true love of mine.
    Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
    Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;
    Without any seam or needlework,
    Then she shall be a true love of mine.

    • Hi Kate, Thank you for your kind words – I have had such a great time demonstrating at Margaret River Silk Road over the past few weeks and have been invited to do some more demos before Christmas. Of course I know the song you have remembered but actually only know the first 4 lines – I appreciate you researching and providing me with the next few. Best Wishes Jane
