Rowan Lloyd
Business Director


Rowan Lloyd is co-founder and Business Director at Between Time and oversees the management and growth of the business. She is responsible for handling all new project enquiries, office management, personnel and training programme direction. Rowan has always recognised the need to carefully select and train Between Time's crafts people to the highest standard. This is seen in the training legacy laid down by the company over decades, re-introducing traditional skills and building a work force experienced in a wide range of craftsmanship. The resulting team's strengths and individual abilities are shown in the high quality technical execution of projects. Rowan is keen admirer of the work of William Morris and through his work has been inspired to keep the craftsmanship that he promoted alive for the 21st century.
The rich urban environment of the city of Bristol (UWE) was a stark contrast to earlier rural studies in Snowdonia. Outside of Between Time her creative interests include creative arts, architecture and textile art as part of the Guild of Silk Painter
