Mrs. Hammond is a vicar's wife from an old wool town in the Cotswolds, who feels passionately that through the virtues of wool arts, women and youth can improve themselves. In keeping with the times, Mrs. Hammond has founded The Society to Preserve Wool Arts on the British Home Farm. She is in London every Holiday Season to recruit subscribers and educate the public about the nobility of British Wool, the Cloth Industry and its significance to the Empire.
The Dickens Fair is a setting where Mrs. Hammond aka Jennifer Hammond Landau brings multiple interests together: spinning, art quilts, educating about fiber arts, love of history, passion for costume design, and old friendships.
When not time traveling to London, Jen is a fiber artist working with all manner of wool, felting and surface design. Retired from a 35 year consulting practice in graphic facilitation, she now creates wall hangings and 3D art quilts. Her work is shown locally and in nationally traveling exhibitions, and she is member of Studio Art Quilt Associates. Please visit www.ruedoak.com to view her other creative work.
Visitors to Jen's Bellingham WA studio are welcome by appointment.
