Angela Maddock is a senior lecturer in the school of applied arts at Swansea College of Art, where she teaches on undergraduate and post graduate contextual studies programmes and also on the textiles pathway of the faculty’s MA Contemporary Dialogues programme. She is also a visiting tutor and researcher in the School of Material at the Royal College of Art, London.
Angela’s interests include cloth-based and traditional craft practices. She enjoys an on-going research dialogue with Dr Helena Jerman, an anthropologist at Helsinki University with an interest in the experience of the Russian diaspora in Finland. Their research collaboration explores the importance of transitional objects and transitional phenomena.
In October 2016, Angela secured a Parallel Practices Award with the Crafts Council and the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery at King’s College, London. She is the first ‘Maker in Residence’ of this kind and her work has explored parallels of material empathy between textile practice and nursing. Her experience within the faculty is the focus of her presentation.
