PROJECT 3 — Glow Series

About this project

Awards from Creative Scotland and The Moorman Trust for Weavers towards a period of study and investigation led to a solo exhibition at the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh, 2009.
Ideas were developed from initial starting points of qualities of light, in particular, observations of dappled light patterns through the mashrabiya screens in Cairo during a study trip.
Other tapestries in the series followed including ‘Lime Glow’ & ‘Radiance’, 2011
