Folios and Fibre is the business name of textile and book artist Jane Flower.
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:
