Originally from Berlin, De Wahls has quickly established her name as the ‘enfant terrible of British textile arts’. She tackles subjects as wide ranging as Feminism, Misogyny & Fetishism combined with creative textile recycling in her prolific output.
Encouraging social change and gender equality, exploring Feminism and embracing recycling and reuse are paramount to her practice.
Her extensive body of work has been exhibited and sold internationally, featured online as well as in print and is rapidly gaining appreciation within and outside the Textile Art scene.
In addition to her own practice, Jess also acts as mentor to the finalists of the prestigious Hand & Lock London Embroidery Prize and teaches her very own style of contemporary embroidery in national and international workshops.or tactile learning is a learning style in which learning takes place by you the student, carrying out physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations.
What you can expect from her variety of embroidery workshops, is the confidence and the basic stitches needed to take embroidery out of yesteryear and into the 21st century, because in case nobody told you, embroidery isn't just a craft, it can be fine art too!
So throw all your pre-conceptions over board and let Jess introduce you to one of her greatest passions and hopefully infect you with her enthusiasm.
