Profile

Hannah Lamb is a textile artist, lecturer and author, with a studio in Saltaire, West Yorkshire. Her creative practice focusses on recording a sense of place through careful observation and material investigation. She works with a range of textile processes, including stitch, print and fabric manipulation, creating textile artworks from an intimate scale to larger installation works.

An interest in textile archives and local textile industry has led to recent research projects and exhibitions with Salts Mill, Bradford Textile Archive, Sunny Bank Mills and Bradford School of Art.

Hannah’s first solo book ‘Poetic Cloth; Creating Meaning in Textile Art,’ is published by Batsford (2019).

Hannah Lamb gained a BA (Hons.) Embroidery (2001) and MA Textiles (2010) from Manchester Metropolitan University.
