Lynne Hocking-Mennie  

I am a handweaver and scientist whose work sits at the intersection of art, craft and science.


Artist Statement

I combine these inspirations with explorations of materiality to create handwoven textile objects that give physical form to data/information, aiming for these objects to promote conversations among diverse audiences around identity (what does it mean to be of a place), connection to place (how do we know where we belong and what about that place matters to us), and collective futures (how does our identity and connection to place influence our behaviours).

What craft do you work with? 

Textiles – Fibres

What inspires you to work with this craft? 

My textiles-based practice explores identity and connection to place, taking inspiration from my family’s connection to the weaving trade in north-east Scotland stretching over at least seven generations, as well as environmental data (including soundscapes and weather patterns)

How would you best describe your workspace and what tools could you not do without?
