Instructor Information: Joan Baxter has been an independent tapestry artist for almost 30 years. Her formal tapestry training took place in the 1970s at the Edinburgh College of Art and the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. She spent eight years working as a weaver and trainer in commercial tapestry studios in the UK and Australia, notably working on the Henry Moore tapestries at West Dean Tapestry Studio. Currently she works to commission and exhibits widely around the world. Amongst her many commissioned works are pieces for churches, corporate and private clients.
