About Lucy

Lucy is a woven tapestry artist from Letchworth Garden City, with a Constructed Textiles degree specialising in tapestry weaving, and a commendation from the Simon Jersey Tapestry Award. After spending most of her career developing and delivering art education to the community, schools, and colleges she fully returned to tapestry weaving in 2017, which she continues to teach.

A member of The British Tapestry Group, The Wynd Gallery and various textiles associations she regularly exhibits locally and nationally, along with delivering talks, workshops, and courses.

Her woven work explores a fascination of light play with a love of wildlife and beneficial flowers found in local habitats and is often inspired by her garden and walks around the fields of Letchworth.

It is important to Lucy to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres which has become an integral part of how she works, and often has a direct effect on design and size of a piece, while exploration of combining fibres.

Lucys sources British wools and recycled yarns for use during her teaching and workshops.
