janet armstrong

Janet completed a City & Guild Embroidery course, Parts I and II, whilst living in West Yorkshire and exhibited there with the Textile Art Group and Four at Harrogate, Huddersfield, and Halifax and in 1999 was the overall winner of the Madeira Trophy.

Following her relocation to the Borders, she has developed the interest sparked by a day course using the commercial felt-making machines at Huddersfield University. She now uses hand felted backgrounds with the addition of natural fabric appliqué, hand and machine stitching, to create work which reflects her interest in landscape and plant life.
