McAslan are the architects who updated the contemporary extension. The Building was originally designed by Charles Rennie MackIntosh whos work has been a great influence to my life during my studies and to my working style.
I love the work that I have found that McAslan do they are very considerate to the surroundings . . . .

October 18th - 19th 2008”On October 18th 2008 the first ever West Bristol Art Trail opens, with a huge variety of artwork being shown in artists’ homes, studios and other venues throughout the beautiful West Bristol areas of Clifton and Hotwells. Over 100 artists have signed up to exhibit in this first year, with work including painting, prints, ceramics, textiles, childrens’ books, jewellery, and sculpture. Venues around Clifton, Hotwells, Cliftonwood and Spike Island include artists’ homes and studios, The Clifton Club, Hope Community Church, Christchurch, The Create Centre, The Bristol China Factory and Spike Island Print Studios.
The Hotwells and Cliftonwood Community Association have provided the initial co-ordination, resources and administrative support needed to facilitate the first year of the West Bristol Art Trail, but many of the exhibiting artists have since shared their skills and time to help make this trail a success. Some sponsorship has been generously provided by CHIS and the Hotwells Panto.
Bristol already hosts a number of Arts Trails and Open Sudios throughout the year, but it was felt that, with many artists living in the Clifton and Hotwells area, a new Trail was needed to bring together these artists with the local community. This Trail will give the public a chance to see the amazing variety and quality of work being produced by local artists, as well as to meet and speak with the artists themselves – to learn more about their media, methods of working, and possibly to commission new work. It is also a fantastic opportunity to buy original work that cannot be found on the high street. In addition, there will be a display of ‘Hair Art’ at Sui Generis, where visitors could themselves become a walking work of art, poetry readings, performance art and films.

Over the course of the last two years since moving to Bristol I have started to exhibit my work more as pieces of individual art rather then Textile Designs. Each piece I create is individual and could not be reproduced. I use foil, flocking, stitching and many ad hoc ideas to finish of my work. I currently have a website - www.hannahredden.co.uk which shows my early work. I will start using this Blog though to showcase my new work as I like the freedom of updating my work as is develops.
