What Jo Did Next
Craft and upholstery classes, artworks and interiors consultant
Original pieces of Jo’s striking paper, plaster and silk prints dotted around, combined with a display of chairs suspended from the ceiling provide plenty of artistic inspiration for those who’ve made a special trip down to the studio in addition to workshop attendees. Teaching her two-day workshops, which usually take place twice a month, to crafters keen to reimagine beloved chairs with any level of skill means the classes are open to absolutely anyone eager to learn. Just make sure you have your favourite dining or bedroom chair stripped down, and you’re set for a weekend of fun and hard work.
As happy working on interior design for other independent businesses Bluebird Bakery, Angel on the Green and Rafi’s Spicebox as she is breathing new life into old pieces of furniture, there’s also the opportunity to commission Jo for upholstery projects.
“The fact that a quality piece of furniture that might go onto a fire or on a skip can instead be given a new life is what I like about re-upholstery. The workshops are about passing these old skills on so that they don’t die out.”
