These are my favourite lichen appliqués made for the exhibition at Westonbirt.
The negative shapes have been applied with a variegated thread on to some heavy madras cotton and the spaces heavily quilted.
I think the design and colour palette is reminiscent of Clarice Cliff.
I seem constantly drawn back to this design.
Here are some details of the hangings. The fabric was dyed while I was artist in residence at Nature in Art, Twigworth, Gloucester, earlier on in the summer.
