Jo Whitehead is a professional glass artist with a kiln and studio in Silsden.
She studied Textile Design at Harrow School of Art in the 1980s and worked as a graphic illustrator. Her current interest in kiln formed glass stems from her interest in surface pattern and colour. Jo also teaches glass art at venues around Yorkshire, including The Butterfly Rooms at Saltaire.
She has exhibited her work across the region, including at the Yorkshire Craft Centre, Bradford; Ilkley Art Trail; Saltaire Arts Trail; Otley Courthouse Theatre; and at the Dye House Gallery, Bradford College, where her work was featured in the Bradford College ‘Pick & Mix’ exhibition, 2015.
