Tide/Knots is a collection of work that has evolved from my exploration of surface and structure of tapestry. The manipulation of traditional tapestry techniques provides me with a new creative language to explore my ideas. This series developed from looking at the flow and movement of bodies of water, tides flowing in different directions and at different speed. Ideas were first explored through working with handmade papers and water colour before being developed into tapestry.
