Juliet Bailey

2013 QEST Scholar - Woven Textile Design & Weaving

Juliet co-founded Bristol based design studio Dash + Miller with fellow QEST Scholar Franki Brewer in 2009. She is a designer contributing to a seasonal portfolio of hand-woven designs that are supplied to all areas of the fashion and interior industries, and a seasonal collection of UK produced ready to wear luxury womenswear fabrics.

A QEST Scholarship enabled Juliet to undertake a comprehensive research project throughout the UK to improve her understanding of modern and traditional industrial production methods. The Scholarship was used to fund a series of visits to renowned UK manufacturing facilities that included intensive training in technical aspects of all areas of the UK textiles industry from fibre harvest, through to spinning, dyeing, weaving and finishing.

Juliet and Franki have also set up the Bristol Weaving Mill.
