Claire Whelan

London based award-winning weaver Claire Whelan studied constructed textile design and now teaches the course at The Cass School of Art, Architecture & Design. Claire received the Clothworkers Foundation Award 2017/2018 in conjunction with Cockpit Arts and moved in the Deptford studios in July 2017.

Claire's entire range is gender-neutral, and her interest in colour and the psychological attachments that it provokes within the human mind drives her to find the perfect colour combinations. 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.
