Jennifer Leary (UK/USA)

Jenny Leary focuses her creative practice on the potential of magnetic fields. Her experimental work has been shown in galleries from Ireland (National Craft Gallery) to Beijing (5th Fiber Arts Biennial), and has also been developed into products and patents. She enjoys sharing an assortment of new techniques through workshops, and has taught in a variety of contexts including the London Design Festival, CRASHspace Los Angeles, and the Inter Symposium for Electronic Arts in Istanbul. Recently, she led a demonstration and was an invited panelist at the Surface Design Association conference in San Antonio. Her curiosity and passion for magnetism was sparked while on the MA Design for Textile Futures course at Central Saint Martins, and she has continued to mine this rich topic ever since. Currently, she is a research assistant at the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University, where she is studying for a PhD in textile engineering.
