This This silk scarf ‘Girotondo’ (Italian for round and round) explores a trip Hannah took from Rome to Sorrento and back to Rome again in the summer of 2014.
To produce this limited edition textile, Hannah worked closely with one of the last remaining 2 silk mills near Macclesfield in Cheshire, where silk scarves have been produced for over 300 years. This beautifully versatile textile can be worn and displayed in an array of ways, – perfect for a neckerchief, or framed as artwork.
Hannah is a multi-discliplinary artist & 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. She has found weaving to be a natural process to complement her grid-based image-making and recently completed an MFA in Textiles at Konstfack, Sweden. In 2014 she was awarded the HAY talent award.
My studio specialises in designing and creating unique printed and woven textiles that have an emphasis on storytelling.
