Lucy Sugden

Lucy Sugden Woven tapestry artist and workshop provider

A woven tapestry artist inspired by nature, the beauty in the small and delicate that catches the eye.

I often weave with monofilament fishing line, a material I love to use because of the challenges it gives and it's aesthetic appeal. I prefer to create my work from repurposed and found fibres, rather than taking new resources from the environment.

A member of the Wynd Gallery in Letchworth where you can buy my woven art, or join me on a workshop. I also run tapestry weaving courses at The Letchworth Settlement.

Please look through my website galleries and shop to find my woven work, cards and prints. Read my blog or watch short videos of me weaving.

I have been providing art workshops since 1998, working with all ages and abilities and in schools. Workshops are often textile based. For full information on my workshops please visit my website.
