Based in London 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 & Design.
Claire has recently been awarded the Clothworkers Foundation Award 2017 in conjunction with Cockpit Arts and will be moving into the Cockpit Arts studios in Deptford during July of this 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.
