Ben Hymers

Ben Hymers first joined Dovecot as an Apprentice Tapestry Weaver in 2014. His apprenticeship lasted three years during which time he learnt the traditional skills of tapestry weaving. During his time as an apprentice, Hymers worked towards building a relationship with the cultural and historical traditions of artist craftsmanship at Dovecot whilst developing a personal, creative identity. He is part of the evolving lineage of this highly skilled and beautiful art form. Originally from Leeds, Hymers has an MA (Hons) History of Art from the University of Edinburgh, starred in the BAFTA nominated The 1940s House and is a part-time Close-up Magician and amateur footballer.
