Soledad Santisteban Villanueva

Textile sculptor

After studying at the School of Architecture and graduating in Geography and History, Soledad Santisteban Villanueva studied Preventive Conservation, in which she specialised in the textile world. In 1985, she opened her workshop in Bilbao where she researches and teaches traditional textile techniques: felting, loom weaving, bobbin lace, crochet, tapestry, macramé, vegetable dyes and the conservation and restoration of textile heritage. All her creations are the result of the research she carries out in her workshop. After studying and getting to know natural fibres in-depth, Soledad makes them evolve, breaking their limits, which allows her to create expressive and suggestive pieces. "All my works arise from shapes that create lines, profiles, surfaces and volumes, concave and convex, either to collect, hold, open, close...it bursts" she says.
