Hello, please could you tell us about your business?

Hi, I’m Mo Jackson (business name MOMO) I was a graphic designer for 25 years but textiles were always my first love. I’m happy to say I’ve now left my computer behind and for the last seven years I’ve been a creative feltmaker and tutor.

What can we look forward to seeing at your stand at ESGWSD 2015?

I use both wet and dry felting processes such as needle felting and nuno felting to create wearable art. I use mainly hand dyed merino wool and silk. This year I will be including eco printed scarves using plants and rust which I’m really looking forward to experimenting with.

What are you looking forward to most about the event and/or visiting Lewes?

I love this show, there is always such a buzz of creative excitement. There’s so much to see and buy, it’s get hard to stay on my own stand as I just want to keep looking at everyone elses!

Meet the Trader – Plant Dyed Wool

Today we meet Jane, from Plant Dyed Wool (http://plantdyedwool.co.uk/).

Hello, please could you tell us about your business?

I run workshops teaching wool processing, plant dyeing, peg loom
weaving, spinning, Brinkley loom weaving and felting.  I also sell the
wonderful and so simple to use Brinkley loom.  It takes 5 minutes to warp
up!  All my items for sale are dyed with plants from my garden.  And colour
is my passion.

for sale.
