Francesca Miotti

hand-weaver, textile artist and designer

Biography

Francesca Miotti is a textile designer and artist based in London (UK) and Udine (Italy), who works primarily across woven textiles and basketry techniques. She graduated from the BA Textile Design course at Central Saint Martins (2020), specializing in weaving. She is one of the Cockpit Arts / Clothworkers’ Company Award 2020 winners and is currently based in the Cockpit Arts Deptford studios

She works with weaving as a medium to be included in several contexts, moving away from the usual idea of cloth and using the technical restrictions of the process to allow a more conscious experience with materials and their qualities. By including interactive features in her work through the use of surface, structure and construction, she is interested in the involvement of people’s senses with textiles.
