Jo Franco

Jo has been our librarian since 2010.

I’ve always been a “maker” – making clothes for myself and family. Like many of my generation I was taught by mother and grandmother to knit and sew the proper way. In later years I discovered rug making and again was taught the "proper" traditional way and became an accredited instructor. Then, I discovered WAFTA and am learning all over again!

WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO WAFTA?
Interested in textiles, I was looking for a source of inspiration from like-minded people. 

WHAT TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS DO YOU USE?
Mostly up-cycled fabrics and various rug making techniques- not necessarily to make rugs. 

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?
My rug hooking time has given way to the computer and administrative work as we set the wheels in motion for a second online virtual exhibition- this time open to artists world-wide. See Facebook links for info. 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Colour and ‘design ‘ from my garden and the world around me and also seeing images of the work of artists who speak at WAFTA meetings. Jo is editor of Australian Rugmakers Guild blog
