Born in North Carolina and based in New York, Susannah Weaver earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Product Design with a focus on material research from Parsons School of Design in 2018. That same year, she was awarded the Rado Star Prize at WantedDesign for her graduation project, Felted Concrete. The experimental furniture and accessories collection united two unexpected materials—raw wool and cast concrete—to create a new, innovative hybrid material.
Weaver was introduced to alternative materials and raw fibers while working as a Student Researcher for the Healthy Materials Lab. Later, as an exchange student at Konstfack University in Stockholm, she developed a fine art practice, including life drawing, sculpture, and textile arts. She went on to be studio assistant for Studio Claudy Jongstra, where she honed her skills with fiber arts.
