Originally from Singapore, Tiffany Loy – known for her experimental hand-woven art works, is currently undertaking an MA at the Royal College of Art, London. Exhibited internationally, Tiffany’s work combines traditional weaving techniques with her passion for innovative design.
Excelling in adding contemporary context to heritage craft, Tiffany’s latest piece, ‘The Weaverly Way’ was dyed and woven at Gainsborough’s historic mill.
This structural yet pliable piece beautifully emulates the layering and three-dimensionality of traditional jacquard weaving.
‘The Weaverly Way’ is a striking modern take on time-honoured weaving undertaken at the Gainsborough Mill for nearly 120 years.
Tiffany’s love of weaving began five years ago whilst studying textiles in Kyoto, eventually leading her to begin an MA at the Royal College of Art in London, on the DesignSingapore Scholarship.
“Tiffany is a recipient of the prestigious DesignSingapore scholarship, which is given to select design talents who show the potential to lead in their design fields. She stands out for her creativity, dedication and passion in reinterpreting one of the oldest forms of textile-making through experimentation.” Mark Wee, Executive Director, DesignSingapore Council
