Tarryn Handcock is a cross-disciplinary designer and academic. She currently lectures at RMIT University’s School of Fashion and Textiles, where she specialises in body-based design, the phenomenology of skin and dress, and embodied processes of wear.

Her practice integrates making techniques including body casting and moulding, and explores the human form and surface as a ‘body-site’ for conceptualising, designing and engaging with artefacts of dress.

Handcock holds a practice led PhD in fashion and textiles from RMIT University, and a Bachelor of Design (Honours) in object and jewellery design from UNSW Art & Design. Her work has been presented and exhibited at conferences, panels, and workshops locally and internationally.
