Jenny Newman is a Designer Maker working across both the fields of object and textile design. With an interest in Australian history, identity, culture and the environment, her work is often inspired by these themes.
Jenny's Bark Series is a range of naturally dyed, handwoven purses. Constructed from Eucalyptus dyed Australian wool, the range explores the beauty and diversity of this natural colour source, while attempting to engage people with the tactility of wool.
