  • Product Details

    Jo Waterhouse's 'Hoodening' collage is reminiscent of a Kentish folk custom, in which a wooden hobby horse is mounted on a pole and carried by a hidden figure, disguised under a sackcloth.

    Part of 'English Folk' – a series of 12 paper collages exploring the rich tapestry of British folk costumes. Each piece captures the interplay between the transcendental nature of the costumes (the animal imagery, ritual and tradition) with human fallibility (the rain, undone shoe laces, bald spots).

    About Jo Waterhouse

    Jo Waterhouse is a textile designer and artist. She spent nearly a decade working as an antique dealer where she learned about materials, design and human eccentricities. Jo’s work draws heavily on her imagination, as well as British folk traditions and her own suburban surroundings.  Her characterful collage works utilise many materials, patterns and textures.
