Biographical Sketch

When he was 18, Jason Collingwood briefly learned to weave with his late father, Peter Collingwood, the internationally acclaimed weaver, instructor, and author of four definitive reference books on rug weaving.  Six years later, Jason returned to the discipline and set up his own rug weaving workshop, now located in Nayland, Suffolk.

Jason has woven to commission more than 2,000 rugs.  Mostly for private clients, though also for some corporate clients, and he has worked with numerous architects and interior designers.

Large commissions include a series of 24 rugs for the Sheraton hotel in Dar-es Salaam, in Tanzania; and a series of rugs for a castle in Switzerland.  Commissions can be woven to any size and colour way, are strong and durable for use on the floor, but equally can be used as wall-hangings.

Exhibitions include a one man show in Amsterdam, and two man shows in Oxford, Connecticut (USA), and Portland (USA).  One of his rugs is in the Tate Gallery in London.

In addition to designing and weaving, Jason spends 3-4 months each year teaching at various art schools in America, Australia, Canada and Europe. This has led to him having his own brand of rug wool in America, as well as instructional DVD's and publications.

In 2016, the Marsh Christian Trust recognized Jason for his teaching and rug weaving accomplishments with the Heritage Crafts Trainer of The Year Award, and The Campaign for Wool awarded him the Wool Carpet & Rug Hall of Fame Commendation.  These are organizations for which HRH, the Prince of Wales, is patron.

We look forward to seeing you in Jason's rug weaving classes soon!
