Jan Beadle is a designer and weaver of contemporary textiles for fashion, interiors and accessories.

After completing her BA Hons in Textiles, Jan moved to Cumbria where she initially worked in Higher Education running a Constructed Textile Resource at University of Cumbria, formerly Cumbria Institute of the Arts.

Since 2010 Jan has been concentrating full-time on making and exhibiting her own work, in which she frequently experiments with different weave stuctures to see how they distort, when manipulated and felted, to create individual handcrafted pieces.

With over 30 years experience with working in the textiles field, Jan will talk about her career and how it all began, with samples to illustrate the techniques she uses in her work.
