Hannah Waldron
Tapestry Weaving
Autumn | 2018

Weaving complements the grid-based images of Cornwall-based artist and designer Hannah Waldron and her narrative-led designs are applied across a range of print textiles, including ‘Furoshiki’ (wrapping cloth) by LINK, a Japanese collective that works with artists from around the world.

Hannah will travel to Japan on a QEST Scholarship for a course in ‘Kasuri’ (threads are bound before dying to create patterns in the woven cloth) at Kawashima Textile School in Kyoto and research at local workshops and museums. In Tokyo, Hannah will visit a specialist in 'Chu-sen' screenprinting for ‘Tenugui’ (cotton hand towels) with LINK for ideas to expand their collaboration.

"The trip will develop all strands of my practice - studio weaving, printed textiles and academic research – and inform my contemporary textile designs for an international audience based on traditional Japanese craft techniques."
