Lucy Goffin’s background is embedded in textile creation, her personal and commissioned work constructed by piecing together textured fabrics, richly coloured or understated and subtle. With a strong sculptural interest and a sense of intricate detail, stitched, layered and applied methods are used in the construction of her work.
Material Being is a new venture conceived by Goffin and stitch colleague Barbara Kennington, and brings together a unique combination of textile experience. This joint project recognises the desire to find, buy and wear unique and individual garments that directly connect the wearer and the makers. Items that bring together contemporary hand stitching, shape, detail and construction – heritage items that will withstand the pressure of time and fashion.
Both personal work and work from the Material Being collaboration will be shown at the the ‘praktis/2018 craft exhibition.
