Artist / Voluntary Arts London Development Officer
F.A.T. Studio / Voluntary Arts
Natanya is a creative practitioner interested in collective and intuitive making. Natanya’s approach is hands on, and is concerned with how we can feel more in touch with our everyday environments. Tactile workshops make up a large part of her artistic practice, often involving collective weaving processes to fabricate community closeness. Natanya enjoys re-purposing throwaway materials; polystyrene chip boxes have been transformed into looms, and disused ethernet cables have become weaving materials to re-connect participants with their environment. In 2016, Natanya initiated the first series of creative workshops to be hosted at the Royal National Institute of Blind People, and continues to manage an arts programme at RNIB. Natanya is a part-time Development officer for Voluntary Arts, and also a co-director of F.A.T. Studio.
