Jane Robertson Heriot-Watt

Roles and Responsibilities

I am responsible for the technical support in all of the textile and fashion workshops, as well as the space and equipment within these workshops. I am also the School’s Health and Safety officer ensuring a safe working environment for staff and students.


I’ve worked for the School of Textiles and Design for 29 Years. I’m a graduate from the Scottish College of Textiles, and before coming to work for the School, I worked in industry as a children’s wear designer and pattern cutter. I have always loved making garments and started sewing when I was 11. I love living in the Scottish Borders as it allows me to go hillwalking and cycling in the most beautiful countryside.
