About The Tile Lady

Jo  Amey’s interest in tiles began when she was studying Environmental Design at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art in the late 70’s.  She became fascinated by the range of tiles and other ceramics in Bournemouth and Poole and studied them in depth as her final year research project.

In 2012 she started offering guided walks as part of East Dorset Architectural Heritage Week and was featured in the Daily Echo.

She now offers illustrated talks on the subject which can be adapted to focus on particular areas, themes or manufacturers.   Her Facebook Page ‘The Tile Lady’  is a popular and lively forum sharing images of interesting tiles from all over the world.  She is a registered speaker for Dorset WI, passing the audition in 2017.
