Janell Wysock On Weaving your Own Way
Today we have on the amazingly talented Janell Wysock. Janell is a fashion designer, artist, weaving, and knitter based in Philadelphia. We were both graduates of the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. Janell was always creative and when she found textile design it opened up a whole new world for her. While she has a one-of-a-kind sustainable fashion and home line, I have been blown away by her installations. I loved her large-scale sustainable woven tapestry all created from scraps of recycled fabric or the 'Color Under the Canopy' installation where she creates brightly knit coverings around the local trees in center city Philadelphia. Janell is also a great teacher and has taught at many prominent art retreats. I loved hearing how she found her way into her craft and her focus on sustainable practices to create textile art.
