Hannah Ashwell - exploiting the colour, texture and pattern of fine cottons and silks, Hannah combines traditional and modern origami folds to create unique objects and installations.

Hannah methods of folding fabric into origami was first exhibited with the launch of bY Mi in 2008. Since then she has continued to developed her techniques to exploit the textures, patterns and durability of fabric. Scoring, bonding and stitching squares of fabric into 3d objects. The endless possibilities of using textiles in place of paper has lead to a variety of bespoke commissions. In this 10th anniversary year Hannah is collaborating with fellow creatives to push the practice further. Her current focus is on researching natural geometry and using plant-dyed fabric to mimic real flowers. Along side this study Hannah also looks to exploit scale, colour and pattern to do what nature cannot.
