Jane trained at the University of Plymouth, graduating with a BA(hons) in 3D furniture and product design in 1998. Moving straight into costume and prop making, Jane has worked in theatre, film and carnival for the last 23 years. Alongside this, Jane has taught people of all ages how to sew and has worked as maker in residence at schools, nurseries, libraries, museums and theatres.
Since moving to the Wirral in 2014, setting up her own studio space, Jane has been exploring zero waste pattern cutting for fashion design, developing her own patterns for dressmakers. In October 2019, the ‘Crafters & Makers’ studio was opened, where Jane shares a love of making, runs sewing workshops and develops her up-cycled, zero waste and sustainable range.
