Hey, I'm Joey. Dyer, painter, knitter, spinner, weaver and craft obsessed owner of Joanna Wood Paint. I fired up the dye pots about four years ago and haven't looked back since.
With a background in fine art and a Masters in Abstract Painting, swapping pouring paint on a canvas to throwing colour into the dye pot came naturally to me. As an abstract artist, I very much enjoy experimenting with colour and playing with different techniques, I use similar methods when dyeing, but now I 'paint' yarn instead of a canvas.
Many of my colourways are inspired by the pallets of fine artists and their masterpieces. My yarns are bold, vibrant and playful; and aside from my artist inspired ranges, I also take inspiration from colour itself and enjoy playing around with different colour combinations to create unique yarns.
Joanna Wood Paint is the definition of a cottage industry, based out of 'Lilac Cottage,' I lovingly create my yarn in my garden studio workshop a.k.a. 'Little Blue Shed' and ship it around the world from my base in Cheshire.
It makes my day to see what you guys make with my yarn and I love nothing more than receiving amazing feedback from satisfied customers, so make sure to tag me on Instagram with your makes and yarn!
