Details

Learn the art of weaving with artist and designer Hannah Waldron.

After an introduction to Waldron’s practice and considering design, colour and pattern in our exhibition Disobedient Bodies: JW Anderson curates The Hepworth Wakefield, you will be guided in constructing a miniature loom from laser-cut plywood components. This loom will then be used to learn different weaving techniques, gain an understanding of materials, plan your design and create a bespoke woven artwork.

You will be given a wooden box to take both your loom and miniature tapestry home in.

Hannah Waldron is a multi-discliplinary artist and designer based in the UK. Her graphic and narrative-led image-making has been applied across a range of media from print to textiles, at both a personal and architectural scale. Finding weaving to be a process complementary to her geometric image-making, Waldron completed an MFA in Textiles at Konstfack, Sweden. In 2014 she was awarded the HAY talent award.
