In 2016 I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship enabling me to travel to Europe and the US to study the medieval techniques used at the zenith of tapestry production. It has had a massive impact on my practice and I have embraced a more formal approach to contemporary tapestry. The Nook is a very personal tapestry, seeking to explore one’s longing for a past that cannot be reached. It has a cotton warp and a hand-dyed woollen weft. It measures 1.22m x 1.3m and took approx 980 hours to weave.
