Construct 2019

‘Construct’ was a 62 Group exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills, Farsley, Yorkshire, which included my work ‘Running Stitch Under Construction’

The theme Construct offers a rich seam to mine for inspiration. Works built using a range of textile construction techniques, diverse materials and structural forms, will surely have a focus, alongside pieces inspired by the built environment. Less obvious interpretations around the construction of ideas, arguments and narratives may also be seen.

2011 Embroiderers’ Guild Awards winner

In 2011 I made a work for the Embroiderers’ Guild Members Challenge. The brief used an Or Nué textile work by Margaret Nicholson from the Guild collection as the starting inspiration.

The work ‘Or Nué Reimagined’ was my response, and was the Winner of the Valerie Campbell Harding prize for Innovation and Winner of the Embroiderers’ Guild Presidents Cup for 2011.
