London based Claire Whelan has previously studied textile design, and alongside her weaving activities also works as a constructed textiles technician at The Cass School of Art, Architecture & Design.
Claire has recently been awarded the Clothworkers Foundation Award 2017 in conjunction with Cockpit Arts and moved in the Deptford studios in July last year.
With a highly developed understanding of materials, dyeing and hand weaving techniques, Claire brings wonderfully rich combinations of pattern and colour to her art, and each piece she produces.
