Dorothy loves making woven tapestry pictures and textile pieces inspired by her travels.
Meet Dorothy the talented mother of Kate Crossley (known for her textile 3 D pieces). Dorothy loves to work on pieces that allow her to exaggerate the traditional tapestry stitches which she feels make the whole piece richer.
Dorothy explains to Valerie that there is a difference between embroidery tapestry and the traditional woven tapestry that she enjoys working on; she can use up to 40 strands of thread to create the texture and flow of colour.
Much of her recent work has been influenced by her trip to India – hence the toran door decorations that now decorate the doors in her home.
