It´s not often that we profile other weavers in our blog. But I just had to share the incredible work of Jennifer Robertson with you. She´s a British-trained weaver but (sadly for us in Europe!!!!) emigrated to Australia in the 1986s. She studied textiles at West Surrey College of Art and Design and then went on to the Royal College of Art in London.
I find her work is incredibly beautiful, her use of colour masterly, and there is a sheer intelligence and enjoyment of weave in her work which really resonates with me.
Enjoy the pictures – and if you possibly can – invest in a piece of her hand-woven work from her online shop. The scarves are good value for money for what they are and believe me, they are masterworks. If you aspire to create beautiful and accomplished woven textiles of your own – then a textile of hers should inspire, amaze and inform you for years to come!
If you feel inspired by her work and have a 4 or 8 shaft loom you can weave double or triple layer fabrics. Check out our courses or book some one-to-one tuition with us and start weaving double-weave fabrics of your own.
