Hanny Newton

Hanny Newton is a metal thread embroiderer who follows her own personal response to the traditional art form of goldwork. Since studying at the Royal School of Needlework (2011 – 2013) she has been interested in the inherent qualities of different metal threads – the way threads interact with light, and the subtle differences in movement and memory.  She works with metal threads form the UK’s last remaining metal thread manufacturers, who spin metal threads using methods that have barely changed for centuries.

She creates from her studio in Shropshire, working on her own pieces and with interior designers and art consultancies to apply her contemporary approach to metal thread work to larger scale projects for hotel and private residencies around the globe. She has taught her contemporary approach to Goldwork internationally, including the The British Museum, London, Westdean College UK, and the Australian Design Centre, Sydney.
