Lockdown Project – Glass Embroidery

As the country has gone into lockdown because of the Corona virus, I thought now would be a great time to start on a project I’ve been wanting to explore for a while.

I wanted to go back to the work I created for my third year of university and see how else I could combine textiles and glass into a project. As I don’t have access to a workshop for the foreseeable future I’ve had plenty of time to work on some embroidery designs from home.

I’ve taken inspiration from textures in nature, mainly looking at algae, lichen and any kind of colourful natural patterns I could find on wood, sand, rocks or even corroded metal.
