Jane Abbott is a single artist exhibiting at her farm in Swerford, which is close to both Chipping Norton and Hook Norton. Her painted work includes finely detailed watercolours, gilded calligraphy and handmade artists books, all of which are being shown at her exhibition and particularly demonstrate her love of nature and travel. She also works in textiles producing both wet and needle felted work. She creates needle felted sculptures using fibres from all over the world but particularly enjoys using local sheep fleeces and fibre from her own herd of alpacas. Many of the sculptures such as foxes and hares are both life like and life size. Wet felted work includes bags and pictures.
Jane holds both group and individual felting and art workshops in her studio at the farm, and also does talks and demonstrations. Please email or telephone for details. She is a member of CNArts in Chipping norton and is a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild.
