Meet the Team - Jan

Prior to shifting to Blenheim about eight years ago, my craft techniques were embroidery, knitting, dressmaking and some felting. Since joining Creative Fibre in Marlborough I have expanded my interests to include inkle weaving, tapestry weaving and more felting.

I have recently been Area Delegate for Nelson-Marlborough and found many wonderful people who work hard to promote and produce beautiful fibre creations. I am now working with the Festival team to inspire, learn and be passionate about our Creative Fibres.
This picture of me was taken by Chris on Heritage Day

This is the view from my balcony overlooking the leafy suburb of Blenheim where I live.

I wanted to make a bag with lots of pockets and felting was the ideal technique.

This photo of Castle Point inspired me to embroider a miniature of the scene and later to depict it in tapestry weaving.
