Lucy Sugden

I gained a BAHons from Middlesex University in Constructed Textiles specialising in tapestry weaving, and a commendation from the Simon Jersey Tapestry Award. After spending most of my career developing and delivering art education to the community, schools, and colleges I fully returned to tapestry weaving in 2017, which I continue to teach.

A member of The Wynd Gallery and various textiles associations I regularly exhibit locally and nationally, along with delivering talks, workshops, and courses. 

I work from my studio in North Hertfordshire. My weaving explores a fascination of light play and combining man made and natural fibres with a love of wildlife and beneficial flowers found in local habitats and is often inspired by my garden and walks around the fields of Letchworth. 

It is important to me to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres which has become an integral part of how I work, and often has a direct effect on design and size of a piece.

I source British wools and recycled yarns wherever possible for students to weave with when attending my workshops.
