Mentoring

Do you need help with refining your career path, expressing yourself in written and spoken word, writing statements, CVs and funding applications?

I provide tailored mentoring guiding individuals to strengthen their skills and build confidence to introduce themselves, this includes elevator pitches and written forms, to allocate and approach relevant organisations and professionals, and improve their on-line presence.

I am a mentor for the University of the Arts London, and a visiting lecturer for Central Saint Martins, Royal College of Art and The Glasgow School of Art.

Masterclass Sweden

I will be teaching a 7-day weave masterclass at Sätergläntan Institutet in Sweden this July.

With a focus on experimentation this workshop will encourage you to build woven structures with uncommon materials, which may include materials commonly used by other industries, second-hand, up-cycled or rejected goods. The process will help you to push the boundaries and explore innovative ideas and outcomes while it gives existing materials another meaning and role in life. 

Title: ‘Another Meaning’
When: 29th July to 4th Aug 2019
Where: Sätergläntan, Insjön, Sweden
Day schedule: 8:40am - 4pm Monday to Saturday, 8:40am to 12 noon on Sunday
Fee: 6000SEK (£492), it includes lunch and evening meals and refreshments
Accommodation: on site at different affordable price ranges

Hint on ‘uncommon materials’: encouraging your creative thinking I'll ask you to arrive on my course with a selection of unusual materials that you can weave with. This material may be something that you can directly use on the loom such as cassette tapes and electric wires, or something that you need to prepare for loom use such as single-use plastic bottles. I'd like you to spend time observing your environment, what you have at home that could be up-cycled into a weave experiment or artwork, what is available in your town, perhaps goods from garage/car booth sales or second-hand charity shops. Is there something specific, typical or personal that you can use? Something that you see all the time but never thought of working with it? Something that you collected for a while, or on travels or were given? Think manmade and nature. Think scale small or large, short or long, thin or thick. Let your imagination go beyond the common and use this as an opportunity to experiment with ideas, materials and processes you have not before. Bring a sketchbook, pencils and scissors with you. I'm excited to meet you and see what you all come up with.

Theo Moorman Trust Award 2018

I am proud to be recipient of the Theo Moorman Trust Award 2018. The project focuses on re-assessing my woven sculptural work X-Ray series. The Award is supporting my in-depth research on the role of textiles in the 20th century in recent years. I will be travelling to Paris to meet and discuss work with textile artist Sheila Hicks who has kindly agreed to meet me at her solo exhibition at the Centre Pompidou this April. On my return, I will continue experimenting with new processes and materials in my studio.

Works I am making explore the idea of function, expectations and limitation we have for objects and people. The project will enable me to question, and express my findings through new mediums and processes resulting in sculptural works.
