An interdisciplinary practitioner specialising in textiles, Claire's work includes outreach projects with young people and disadvantaged groups
Claire Harris sees herself as an interdisciplinary practitioner specialising in textiles. She develops, makes and markets a contemporary fashion range, while also teaching at Coventry University, Nottingham Trent University and the University of the Creative Arts. Claire’s other work has a strong community focus, and she has partnered with a homelessness charity and with Groundwork West Midlands to run fashion and textiles projects with young people considered Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEETs). Claire also has a strong impetus to develop the conceptual, research-led side of her practice.
