About

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 The 62 Group, 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’s work is both site-specific and for galleries, providing sculptural tapestries for public and private spaces. In addition to this Jane delivers mentoring, workshops, and talks on request.  Exciting and ambitious collaborations with galleries, artists and publications are welcomed.
