TEA ‘N CHAT – Fibre to Fabric + Angela Walker

Tuesday 14th May 2024  

A TEA ‘N CHAT with ANGELA WALKER talking about the process of fibre to fabric.
Angela talks about her work, starting with fibre, from collecting it, the processes involved such as carding and spinning (the different types), through to weaving (different looms) and needle felting that can be used in an arts based or fashion context. She covers how this can be incorporated into the classroom and workshops or extra-curricular activities.

Angela currently works as a Textiles, Art and D&T Teacher (plus a little French GCSE!) as well as running textiles workshops, volunteering and making the occasional fashion clothing request.

Angela has an MA in Fashion and Textiles, though initially started a global corporate career in law and politics, but always took her sewing machine and paints with her.

Wanting to still pursue fashion and textiles, Angela moved into a legal department in a fashion company as a Quality Controller, then a Garment Tech, later moving into FE teaching and interpreting before becoming a teacher in secondary schools in the UK during covid.

Angela is also a member of a local Textiles group and volunteers with organisations such as Mind (running art and textile workshops), local sensory charities and demonstrates weaving techniques at events like Wool at Junction 13. She keeps her own Angora and uses the fibre to card, spin, weave and felt herself.
