Hannah Ayre is a participatory artist working with audiences where the boundaries between art, craft, performance & collaboration are blurred.
Works range from small craft items to large scale outdoor sculpture, performance and events. Aiming to have minimal environmental impact through the creative process and to engage the public. Media includes ceramics, paper, textiles, reclaimed materials and fire!
Projects often take place in unconventional settings, by taking the work out of the gallery removing some of the barriers to participation. Ayre finds inspiration for each project from the individual environment and the audience. She has extensive experience of engaging audiences of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
During her career, she has worked with a broad range of organisations including NVA, Walk the Plank, The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, The National Museums of Scotland, Historic Scotland and various local councils.
