About this project

Maides Coign was woven in 2014 insitu at East Riddlesden Hall, a National Trust property in West Yorkshire whilst I was an Artist in Residence there.

It was inspired by an inscription that referred to daughters as cornerstones, and I wanted to capture something of the stresses and strength the role of daughters within families can carry. The tapestry was woven using hand-dyed wool. The finished size is approximately 148 x 190 cm. The tapestry was subsequently purchased for the hall.
