Teignmouth Arts Action Group, 6th – 12th May 2017, a joint exhibition with fellow tapestry artist and spinner, Isabelle Jourdan (www.wildwomanweaving.wixsite.com/warpspeed) Teignmouth, Devon, www.teignmoutharts.org. Isabelle has received the Coldharbour Trophy for weaving, and the Helen Gallagher Memorial View Award.
One exhibit (a series of five) called Blessée, which is French for ‘wounded’, was placed behind a screen with an invitation to spend a short time alone with it, taking part in a brief recorded Mindfulness practice; many people found it deeply moving. (The piece has mosaic gold glass woven into the piece with steel wire.) When my work touches people in this way, and helps them to feel a connection with our common humanity, instead of feeling alone with the challenges that life inevitably brings, I am deeply moved and satisfied.
Green Fuse Heart and Soul Funerals – 2016
Jo’s work is supporting the process of training of funeral celebrants by Green Fuse Heart and Soul Funerals – when they are helping a family to create a funeral, it is like weaving the threads of a life. It is a privilege for Jo to make bespoke work as a memorial for a loved one.
The piece is intentionally unfinished.
