Wool@J13 comes to you courtesy of Ingrid Wagner and Val James, two women who have joined their considerable forces to bring you this vibrant and stimulating show, designed to celebrate and help you to learn about all things woolly through its exhibitors, exhibitions, workshops & talks. Music, some mayhem and senses stealing Street Food from all around the world have been mixed into the equation. Ingrid & Val like fun as well as wool. They think you’ll like it too.
Ingrid has a passion for colour. She is a freelance artist specialising in painting portraits of animals https://www.facebook.com/petsbyIngrid/, runs the weekly Big Craft Breakfast @Bod group in Stafford & gives after dinner & group talks & workshops UK wide. She has a background in film & theatre and exhibited on the UK show circuit with her own textile business 2006-2019. She holds a First Class Honours degree in Textile Design and a Masters in Cultural Management. She has lived & worked with many different ethnic communities in Poland, Russia & Morocco and now in Milford, Staffordshire. Her feet tend to itch if she stands still, so she hardly ever does. Her passion for colour is almost matched by a passion for teaching & learning.
Val James, on the other hand, has a passion for animals and conservation, and is one half of the couple who run the 600 acre beef and arable farm at Lower Drayton, Staffordshire. It has already diversified into a family fun farm, attracting visitors to learn about its continually developing new habitats and attractions. The farm’s year-round programme of events, activities and educational visits keeps Val just a bit busy. Occasionally she sleeps.
