MEMBER PROFILE

Jean Wildish

Jean Wildish is a textile artist from Penruddock. She began trading as

Tinker Tailors in 2008 and joined the Wool Clip in 2009. An inherited

reluctance to throw things away provided Jean with early opportunities

to design and make. Trading as Tinker Tailors, Jean makes things out of

stuff - from handspun art yarns to quirky upcycled accessories; as Wild

Wood Wool, Jean produces a repeatable range of hand-dyed natural yarns

and fibres, some of which are available as kits; and most recently, as

Tailor’s Ink, a love of colourful self-expression has resulted in a

range of one-off hand-dyed garments.

Inspired by woodland and Lakeland, Jean’s collection of things 
incorporate natural fibres, recycled fabrics and found objects.
