All About Jen

Hello I’m Jen. I come from a long, long line of makers. I learnt to knit and sew from my mother, metal working from my father and to invent/tinker from my grandfather. Looking further back in my family tree there are calligraphers, shoe makers, cutlers, candlestick makers and piano makers to name just a few.

I studied Mechanical Engineering at Nottingham University and then Applied and Fine Art at Mary Ward before exploring Basketry at the City Lit then machine knitting at Morley College.
