About

Textiles Hub London is an exciting art and design incubator in the heart of London located in a large Victorian warehouse that has been occupied by textile designers since 1978. It’s ideally located next to a leafy park with nearby stations, West Hampstead Overground, Underground (on the Jubilee Line) and Thameslink, just one stop from King’s Cross St Pancras.

Textiles Hub London is designed to give textile practitioners a shared space in which to work, experiment and develop their unique hand-writing. Established by critically- acclaimed British artist Emma Neuberg (Textiles, PhD RCA, 2000), the hub is an extension of the Slow Textiles Group, a social enterprise that she founded in 2007 to enable designer-entrepreneurs to scale-up sustainable, regional textiles practices and related enterprises through educational and management tools.

Neuberg is the recipient of several design and business awards and fine art fellowships. In 2020, she is a Lincoln City Fellow with the Speranza Foundation in Los Angeles, Southern California. The Speranza Foundation is a group that specializes in supporting artist residencies that transform hope into art.
