Textiles In Lockdown

I am delighted to be working with Gawthorpe Textiles Collection to create a Textiles In Lockdown commission, researching and sharing textile practice during pandemic lockdown.

Over August I’ve collected more than 300 stories of textile making during lockdown. The survey is now closed and I will be creating an ebook and podcast from the research over the next few weeks. This will be available from Gawthorpe Textiles Collection website in October. Thank you for your contributions.
