Medieval sample

About this project

I have been awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travelling Fellowship to study medieval tapestry techniques in France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and the US. It has had a major impact on my work, and I have shifted to a bolder, less ‘painterly’ way of weaving whilst still trying to make my work relevant to today. A number of samples have been woven prior to approaching a full sized work. This tapestry was woven in 2018 using a cotton warp and hand-dyed woollen weft and is 57cm x 48cm
