House of Jo is a witty conversationalist and snappy dresser, born in a barn and dragged up via the Inland Waterways: currently as settled as she’ll ever be between the good cities of Bath and Londinium. She is enthusiastic, committed and occasionally churlish.
Fashion is more important to her than war, famine, disease or art. She is a competent pattern cutter, confident constructionist and technical designer producing work informed by a researched past and an imagined future. Mac and P.C. friendly: proficient in Excel, Photoshop, CorelDraw, and a real swizz in Adobe Illustrator.
Accomplished in beadwork, embroidery, crochet, tatted lace, hand and machine knit, currently obsessed with socks and perfecting their manufacture via an antique circular sock machine.
Since graduating House of Jo cut her teeth at Jasmine Di Milo and more recently is a part-time lecturer at Bath Spa University and City of Bath College.
