Janet Holt

Janet is a botanist by profession, but her passion for textiles led her to take a Post Graduate Diploma in woven textile design from Farnham College of Art and Design. She then became a member of The Makers Guild in Wales. Her interest in historical textiles led her to weave replica fabric for Shakespeare's Birth Place Museum and Yorvik Viking Museum. Since Janet moved to Shetland, she is exploring native Shetland wool and creates sharp, modern pieces, but with a real sense of tradition.
