Joanna Jarvis is the editor of the Baskerville Society newsletter.
Joanna worked for many years in the theatre, specialising in period costume design and construction, after gaining a degree in theatre design from the City of Birmingham Polytechnic.
Recently she has combined an academic career, teaching design in the School of Visual Communication at Birmingham City University, with designing costumes for re-creations of Renaissance and Baroque dance. She is currently studying for a PhD, focusing on costume for dance in the late eighteen-century, and its relationship with fashion through the women in the audience.
Joanna is a founder member of the Baskerville society, furthering her interest in eighteenth-century Birmingham, its theatre, and artistic community.
