Maker's bio

I am a Weaver, Printmaker, Felt maker and Dyer living and making in the West Midlands. I practice and I teach. I have learnt from some of the most generous of makers/teachers and I hope that their good practice and generosity shines through in my teaching too. I love learning from students and from fellow makers in my neighbourhood. I am the founding member of Made in Boldmere.

Diane reviewed: Cyanotype Prints - the fundamentals and more ...

"A busy day with lots of techniques to experiment with. Judy explained and demonstrated the basics of the processes and then we had free reign to try them out using the materials she had prepared for us. The workspace was a little crowded but we made good use of the garden and it was fine. We came away with lots of pieces of work created. I'm intrigued to see what else I can do by experimenting, and am ordering supplies now! Thank you for the tea loaf too - scrummy!"

Judy P. dye - print - weave responded:

" Thanks Diane. I’m glad you enjoyed the day and the tea loaf!! I am Grateful for your feedback on space. I plan to reduce the number of workshop participants accordingly, especially as Autumn approaches. Look forward to seeing your results as you further experiment. Judy "
