A series developments led to the innovation of a new textile which uses hollow mesh tubular structures filled with locally sourced wool tops and recycled plastic. The beauty of this technique is that it is like 3 dimensional painting, where the wool substitutes the paint and a series of tools she has developed act as the brush, giving her the freedom to place colour and textures within the tubes to mimic the mood of her research. These semi rigid structures are then knitted into samples on her knit machine, and even woven in 3D on her knit machine, a technique she adapted from her time working with weavers in Guatemala.
These textile experimentations inspired Jane’s graduate collection, see ‘Chaos as a Dwelling Place.’
