Hannah Day lives and works in and around Ledbury in Herefordshire. A recent graduate of Hereford College of Arts, Hannah produces concept-driven hand-built clay pieces using found objects as a starting point, incorporating textiles and other materials into the finished pieces.
The work relates to our belongings and their importance to us, and Hannah has a particular interest in projects which facilitate the exploration of evocative objects as memory prompts and aids to self-understanding. She also enjoys engaging with children and young people, encouraging every participant to explore their own creativity in the belief that art is for everyone.
Hannah has delivered pop-up workshops at Weir Garden NT, and has run regular craft club sessions under the name Laughing Betsy, along with textile artist Cheryl Hewitt. Workshops cover ceramics, collage, mixed media, textiles and other materials. She has also recently become a Creative Practitioner with Meadowarts, an arts organisation based in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire.
