Charlotte Karin is a designer specialising in woven constructed textiles. Her practice is centred around the contemplative philosophy of depicting memory, fabricating this through handwoven textiles using the delicate technique’s leno and painted warps. Translating the narrative through the essence sculptural transients. Articulating a mood through an immersive ambiance.
She has developed a unique and personal approach to her process and concepts in textile weaving and construction, which stems from a highly exploratory focus.
Prior to an MA in Textiles at the Royal College of Art, Charlotte completed a BA in Textile Design at The University for Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey.
Charlotte’s MA dissertation The Memories we Share received a distinction. The writing reveals the importance of Memory. A fundamental narrative, ability, and experience. Elevated by poets and philosophers as a phantasma. Exploring the relationship between recollections, life, and how we construct ourselves around memories. This research continues to support her practice.
