Hannah Gartside works with textiles, she uses found fabrics and objects. Her materials are carefully reconfigured using processes from the history of women’s home craft practices including felting, quilting, and sewing. In her practice she seeks to communicate hopefulness, vulnerability and desire. Hannah Gartside received a BFA from Victorian College of the Arts in 2016.

Gartside presented her first solo exhibition in 2016 at George Paton Gallery (2016), and has participated in group exhibitions at Craft Victoria, Yarra Sculpture Gallery, Wangaratta Art Gallery, QUT Art Museum, Metro Arts Gallery and McClelland Gallery.
