About Jessica Ingram
Jessica grew up on her family’s farm based in the Chiltern Hills in Oxfordshire, but with a grandmother that was a prolific knitter and a Grandfather who was a sculptor (before later becoming a farmer) a creative career is probably what she as always destined for.
In 2017 Jessica found her way to the Future Tutor Programme at the RSN, from which she graduated in August 2020. During her time on the programme she gained expert knowledge in many of the other traditional embroidery techniques, such as Blackwork, Goldwork, Stumpwork, Fine Whitework and Silk shading, as well as working in the RSN studio, learning how to conserve and restore historical embroidery.
Whilst she no longer works on the family farm much as she used to, it is still a source of inspiration both visually and personally. From the landscape and wildlife, which give plenty of inspiration for kit designs, to the walks through the fields to one of her favourite views on the farm.
