Co-Vice Chair and Student Bursaries Lead
Joanne’s career has progressed from academia to practice-based research as a maker-historian. She has been on the judging panel for the Textile Society Student Bursary Award Scheme for several years, recently taking over as Lead Judge.
“This wonderful experience has led to my interest in the role of Co-Vice Chair and to support the ongoing work of the Textile Society and its dynamic members, and to encourage the study of textiles in its broadest context. As a Professional Development Award recipient, I am very motivated to give back to the Society and support others in the same generous way that has been given to me.”
