Textile tales

  • • Hannah is a trained illustrator
  • • She describes herself as a textile storyteller
  • • Respect for Japanese craft traditions influences her making

After graduating and freelancing as an illustrator and art director, Hannah Waldron fell in love with the woven work of Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl at the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin. Inspired, she experimented with weaving on a small loom and completed a MFA in Textiles at Konstfack in Stockholm. Ever since, fascinated by the possibilities of weaving, Hannah has specialised in telling stories through her textiles: “I don’t think one lifetime is enough to fully realise all the incredible techniques that the craft of weaving offers.” Working from her studio in Cornwall with a beautiful garden and café, she intuitively combines different natural and naturally dyed fibres like wool, silk and linen in a sustainable way.
