Joan Charnley (1928 - 2016) was a prolific textile designer during the 50's and 60's. She passed away in 2016, leaving her house in Uppermill and all her artworks to her neighbours and friends Nigel Durkan and Julian Bovis.
During the renovations, they discovered a hidden hoard of Joan's artwork. These had not been seen for almost 70 years, and it's the same designs we're now delighted to offer.
Nigel and Julian completed renovations on Joan's house in 2019, and following her wishes, they have created a contemporary gallery, showcasing new artists, supporting students and the local community. It's called The Weavers Factory.
