Artist Bio

Wendy Greaves is a textile artist and teacher, 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 will be her last year in Rutland as she takes time to produce more of her own artwork and moves to North Devon. Wendy exhibits regularly and is looking forward to promoting her work in Devon and Cornwall.

Her recent 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 will be opening her studio throughout 2023 (watch for info) and is exhibiting recent work from this year locally (see Instagram for details @wendy.greaves.textiles).
