Exhibitions and Projects

Sharing creativity


Art work is available for loan or for sale or by commission and can often be seen as part of services and other events in local churches. We have been invited to create sanctuary and prayer spaces in secular and faith-based settings, where art work from hopeweavers can often be found.  Judith Handford has eight canvases on show as part of New Wine 2017.

Studio visits are welcome - but please ring first to arrange a suitable time. We stock a modest supply of excellent quality art materials - ask Jac if this is of interest to you. We thank all those able to purchase art work - all sales support our ministry at hopeweavers.

Cathedrals Group Chaplains National Conference Winchester University February 2016

Led by Judith Handford, a small team shared art work and creative opportunities in the newly reordered Chapel at Winchester University as part of the Cathedrals Group National Chaplains Conference.  

 Hopeweaver Sanctuary Spaces  

We worked alongside the young people and staff at Bluebird House to create 'The Sanctuary' together. This is part of the circular rainbow rag rug that fills the centre of the prayer space - we made it in 10 sections by tying and knotting reclaimed fabrics together.  We also created a triptych wall hanging with over 150 panels made by Bluebird young people and staff.  

It is a great privilege to share creativity with folks of all ages living and working in a variety of settings. Following this project, we were invited to help create a similar sanctuary space at Ravenswood and currently are working alongside staff and students at the Royal School,Surrey.
