Back to work

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

After a long summer holiday and break from writing my blog I am back at my (new) studio continuing with making some woven pieces telling the story of my great great grandparents. I am making a wall hanging in 8 panels (in the kente cloth tradition) weaving in 1860’s maps of West Africa and the port of Liverpool where Frederick sailed from on his final journey.

The panels will be stitched together to create a kind of patchwork effect and then embroidered. When this is done I intend to try and find a way of incorporating the collection of Victorian ribbons and lace I have inherited from my great great and great grandmothers into a woven piece.

New studio - very pleased!
