Lorna Jewitt

The textural qualities of cloth and stitch are of particular importance in my work – adding surface texture and pattern mainly through embroidery and appliqué.

I am interested in the history and stories connected with traditional textile techniques, the idea of ‘ordinary treasure’, and of the continued use and reuse of cloth because it is beautiful rather than it being merely recycled.

Previous projects and exhibited works have been inspired by local textile archive and museum collections, more recent work has included collaborations with artists exploring text and collage.
