The Loom Shed Textile Graduate Day – Jane Stephens and Ruth Petersen

June 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm


1.30pm Jane Stephens

BA Hons Textile Design (Weave) at Falmouth University

I came to study at Falmouth as a 61-year-old mature student, having done very little creatively throughout my working life. I was introduced to weave in the first year, and my focus quickly developed as an interest initially in double cloth and then into multilayer weaves.


2.00pm Ruth Petersen 

BA (Hons) Textiles, Knit, Weave and Mixed Media Carmarthen School of Art

The work I am creating for my final major project is a handwoven, large scale, textile sculpture.

This work represents the recent discovery that I had, during the 1990s, been living in what is now recognised as  a very unsafe building. The Ledbury Estate in Southwark includes three high rise tower blocks constructed with the large panel system made of cast concrete built in the late 1960’s. I was living in Peterchurch Tower. These blocks are structurally unsound, with large cracks running through the buildings causing damp but also a massive fire hazard.
