About

Alice Hume is a Textile Artist based at Hotwalls Studios in Old Portsmouth. In 2013 she graduated from Winchester School of Art with a degree in Woven Textile Design. Vanderhume comes from her ancestry of Flemish Weavers. Alice pushes the boundaries of weaving and uses unusual materials of copper yarn and raffia on her 8-shaft Harris Loom.

After Graduating Alice and her father collaborated to make handmade frame looms called Hume Looms from recycled wood which she uses to teach weave workshops. She has also exhibited her work in Edinburgh, Islington, Alexandra Palace and a Solo Exhibition at Aspex Gallery called Wild Water, inspired by the Sea and refugees. Most recently Alice has designed and created a wool window display in Covent Garden for store allbirds which consisted of nine handwoven wool hangings.
