Textile artist and weaver Hannah White creates innovative materials and sculptural art pieces. Her practice centres on exploring structural textiles and material processes, which led Hannah to explore this passion during her Doctorate at the RCA. Hannah thrives on generating fresh approaches to textile processes through reinterpreting handcrafted techniques.
Hannah is fascinated by how weaving and stitching methods can create three-dimensional forms. This curiosity inspires her to combine traditional techniques such as smocking with unexpected uses of materials. Her sculptural forms often explore contrasts between soft/hard surfaces and textiles’ fluidity and metal’s rigidity, creating intriguing textural surfaces.
