Wendy Greaves is a textile artist and was a teacher for 31 years, originally based in Rutland but now living in North Devon. She explores and teaches using a range of textile processes, including embroidery (both hand and machine), resist, print, fabric manipulation and paint. She is never without her camera or sketchbook (and recently her Pomskies, Tallulah & Frankie), collecting inspiration on her journeys.
Wendy was born in Liverpool and gained a BA (Hons.) Structural Textiles (1990) and a PGCE in Art & Design (1991) from Leicester DeMontfort University. She has taught Textiles, Costume and Fine Art at Oakham School since 1991, but 2022 was to be her last year in Rutland as she takes time to produce more of her own artwork and moved to North Devon. Wendy exhibits regularly and enjoys promoting her work in Devon and Cornwall.
Her last major exhibition entitled “Unravelled Journeys” was held at the Wheel House Gallery, Oakham, Rutland from 17th January – 7th March 2022 and showcased thirty years of her work.
She has recently been invited to exhibit in a one month VR exhibition online.

She will also be featured in an upcoming magazine based on the exhibition. Click on the link below.
