Lucy Sugden

Lucy is an artist from Hertfordshire, who graduated from Middlesex University in 1997 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. 

In her work Lucy explores a fascination of light play and love of wildlife and beneficial flowers of local habitats and is often inspired by her garden and walks around the fields of her hometown Letchworth Garden City. It is important to her to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres where possible which has become an integral part of how she works and often has a direct effect on design and size of a piece, along with an exploration of combining fibres.
