For over 50-years Joan Charnley designed textiles for a wide-range of design houses across the country. In this exhibition artist and Weavers Factory curator Julian Bovis re-visits some of Joan’s finest designs and re-interprets them for the 21st Century.

About

Born in Southport in 1928, Joan studied Textiles at Manchester School of Art before becoming a lecturer in Textile Design at Great Yarmouth School of Art. In the 1960s she left teaching to work full-time as a textile designer and botanical artist. Joan died in 2016 and left her lifetime’s body of work to neighbours Julian Bovis and Nigel Durkan, who converted her home into The Weavers Factory in her honour.
