About this project

‘Wavelengths’ is a textiles response to the North Shields environment. ‘Shawl Currents’ refers to the fishwives who worked so hard on Fish Quay, and reflects aspects of their dress through colour, the ‘skirt’ shape and the repeat pattern, inspired by tidal current charts and the shawls the women wore. ‘Shore Currents’ focuses on the fishermen, denoting the ocean’s currents, billowing nets and the peripatetic and often hazardous lives of the men; abstract blocks and lines suggest trawlers.
