Using intricately sculptured textiles, Hayley Beckley harnesses the narrative potential of wearable art to explore elation, expression and empathy; to tell a tale, encourage escapism and fan flames of the fantastical. Her undercurrent of self-questioning and emotional openness touches our need to be at one with ourselves, to find our place, to connect, to create, to feel free.  

Hayley is currently a visiting lecturer in costume making at Nottingham Trent University and runs creative workshops with young people of various ages. She is an experienced costume supervisor, maker and designer, available for freelance design projects. 

Hayley has a studio at Backlit in Nottingham, available by appointment to see work or discuss commissions, please email hayley@hayleybeckley.com to book.
