Textiles & Installation
Tutors: Gerry Davies and Sarah Casey
Within my practice I focus on the themes of heritage, identity, locality and industry, aiming to capture a sense of what it means to be from the North of England. Yorkshire’s historical textile industry acts as my main inspiration, and through my textile pieces I question the relevance of historical industry in contemporary society. In my works about Keighley I focus particularly on my family’s working class background, and the aesthetics and objects that I grew up around, which I feel shaped my identity and my aesthetic decisions in my work.
