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.

Charlie reviewed: Ecodyeing - a full day introduction to leaves, rust, heat and fabric alchemy!

"I loved this course, Judy is a lovely teacher and learning about Ecodyeing is fascinating and rewarding. I love what we produced and it was a fantastic introduction into a subject I want to learn more about. I've already started to buy the equipment to have a go myself at home. I can't recommend it enough. Thank you :)"

Grace reviewed: Natural dyeing - a taster day

"My day with Judy was an inspiration , and met all my expectations. Judy is a very good teacher, and I now have a good overview of the theory and practice of dyeing fabric and yarn with fresh plant material and extracts, including the variation achieved with mordants, heat, and post-dyeing treatments with acids and alkali. Judy's broad experience with spinning , weaving , felting and knitting set the workshop in context and I'm keen to have a go."
