Artist and weaver Sally Hampson is leading an exciting and eclectic life in textiles, from setting up a design studio in Paris, working with interior designers and architects in London, to collaborations on theatre projects for sets and costume in Cairo, working with Bedouin women in Egypt, artisans in Ethiopia and makers in Kenya.
She has shared her creative life as a visiting lecturer at Central St Martins, Goldsmiths College of Art and the Royal College of Art, where she herself graduated with an MA in weaving and is currently running workshops at The Weaving Shed in Stroud.
Sally’s latest woven collection takes you into the heart of the British landscape. Transforms her journeys to the wild landscape of The Outer Hebrides and The Shetland Isles into unique woven textile pieces. In collaboration with bespoke mills in Shetland and Yorkshire, using wool from indigenous sheep, she has created pieces that truly represent the land.
