2012 Artist Bio: Jan Jaworsky

‘Retiring’ after 22 years in the high tech industry, Jan initially put her pastime skills involving sewing/knitting/crocheting to use supporting her two boys’ hockey teams by creating the ‘Waterloo’ (yellow and black) Hockey Scarf and applying the proceeds toward the team budgets. Today, she is focused on making fashionable scarves, and demand has spread to women well beyond the hockey arena.
Jan’s metallic yarn scarf creations are a finishing piece to an outfit and are often thought to be jewellery. They shimmer as if beaded but are lightweight making them ideal for warm weather and travel. They make a unique gift and are ‘ready-to-give’ in organza bag packaging.
