Textile artist Faye Jacobs incorporates traditional practices with experimental ideas to create work that reveres nature, appreciates colour and brings focus to a spiritual journey. Faye’s repertoire of techniques includes natural colours, African and Japanese resist dyeing, weaving, basketry, embroidery, papermaking, garments and multi-media sculpture.
Faye made a significant contribution to textile heritage leading the restoration of a 19th century Jacquard Loom at Lang Pioneer Village Museum in a 2007 project completed in 2020.
Faye’s studio work ranges from homegrown natural dye wearables and small-scale workshops to experimental sculptures emerging on a historic upright loom. Her passion for lifelong learning is an invitation to experiment with materials, innovative techniques and energetic colour celebrating beauty in everyday life.
