Lucy is a woven tapestry artist who loves to weave with fishing line! A love of light play and garden
life inspires much of her work which she creates using traditional woven tapestry techniques on an
upright loom, and her own exploration of the tapestry processes on the circle loom.
With a degree in constructed textiles, specialising in woven tapestry, Lucy has spent most of her
career developing and delivering art education to the community, schools, and colleges only
returning to tapestry weaving in 2017.
‘My work explores a fascination of light play, combining fibres and a love of nature. It is
important to me to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres where
possible, which has become an integral part of how I work’.
A member of The British Tapestry Group and various textile organisations Lucy regularly exhibits
nationally and locally and teaches tapestry weaving at The Letchworth Settlement. She also
continues to deliver her own workshops and talks.
