Lorna Jones

I have worked with fabric and yarn since I was knee-high to my Grandmother's sewing machine. I attended Swansea College of Art where I trained in Technical Graphics and Illustration, specialising in botanical illustration. I worked as an illustrator then brought up my 4 children. During this time I attended many classes updating my textile skills.I also started a knitwear business specialising in making hats, working on commissions and supplying craft shops. I started teaching in adult education over 20 years ago. Ten years ago I was given the opportunity to teach textiles in a secondary school. I then achieved a First Class BA Hons degree in Textiles for Fashion and a fully qualified Teacher status. I am now a full time textile artist. I have worked as an artist in Residence at a Primary School and run workshops for various groups . I exhibit and sell my work and teach sewing and creative textile workshops. I have a studio Space at The Point in Eastleigh and workshops running in the local area.I collect Vintage sewing machines and I run Vintage sewing classes using my machines
