Textiles - Print

History in ink is a project about the family history of Clare Hanimann. From her internship working with Lisa King, a print designer who's obsession with ink and flowers inspired her to do her own experimentation. Since many of her family members were in the army she decided to depict flowers that are associated with war, such as poppies. The project began with the idea of blood poppies.

Textiles - Print

The concept of the ‘Sunday night - bed’ S/S 2021 debut collection is based around the themes of memory and nostalgia and was inspired by the designer’s grandmother’s life. Clare Hanimann’s new collection of handmade textiles is a homage to her family history and her late grandmother.The collection incorporates prints inspired by Clare’s grandmother’s work at Bletchley Park as a young woman in World War II. They depict a conversation between samples taken from letters written between Clare Hanimann’s grandmother and mother between 1980 and 2006.The title of the project derives from her grandmother’s routine of tagging the day of the week and her whereabouts when writing letters. She was inspired by the known and the unknown elements of her grandmother’s life.Clare gained inspiration from designers who work with ciphers and codes such as Cy Twomly and Julie Helles Eriksen. James HD Brown and Sir Edward Paolozzi inspired Clare to work with mixed media, such as watercolours and collage to move into a new area of textile experimentation.
