Having briefly leant to weave from his father at the age of 18, Jason returned to the discipline 6 years later and setup his own workshop in 1986, located in Nayland, Suffolk.

 

Over the last 29 years Jason has woven to commission somewhere in the region of 2000+ rugs. Mostly for private clients, though also for some corporate clients, and worked with numerous architects and interior designers.

 

Large commissions include a series of 24 rugs for the Sheraton hotel in Dar-es Salaam, in Tanzania; and a series of rugs for a castle in Switzerland.

 

Exhibitions include a one man show in Amsterdam, and two man shows in Oxford, Connecticut (USA), and Portland (USA).

 

The rugs can be woven to any size and colour way, are strong and durable for use on the floor, but equally can be used as wall-hangings.

 

In addition to designing and weaving, Jason spends 3 - 4 months each year teaching at various art schools in America, Australia, Canada and Europe. This has led to Jason having his own brand of rug wool in America, as well as instructional DVD's and publications.
