Jane Walkley is a UK based visual artist exploring the interplay between memory, place and attachment. Jane uses traditional tapestry techniques whilst incorporating jesmonite, an eco-friendly resin, which she casts by hand in her studio in Leeds. The finished work takes on a sculptural and tactile quality that maintains a physical and visual connection to the site she is researching, linking place, memory, and materiality.
Jane exhibits at a national level and is a member of PRISM Textiles and the British Tapestry Group. She studied for BA (Hons) Crafts specialising in ceramics and woven textiles at Manchester Metropolitan University (1993) and has an MA in Creative Practice from Leeds Arts University (2019).
Jane teaches from her studio at Sunny Bank Mills and delivers workshops and talks on request. Exciting and ambitious collaborations are welcomed.
