ABOUT LUCY POSKITT
Vancouver-born, Victoria-based textile artist Lucy Poskitt is a contemporary weaver walking the line between traditional image-based tapestry and yardage weaving. Working with a looser and more experimental hand, Lucy draws inspiration from local landscapes and lore - especially the ambiguous stories and symbols we use to explain our place in this world.
Lucy studied within the Interdisciplinary Program of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and the New York Studio Program, focusing on several disciplines: weaving, art history, printmaking and installation art – all which inform her tapestry work and teaching philosophy today.
Her work has been exhibited and collected internationally and she has taught tapestry workshops across Canada to hundreds of students with her relaxed, patient and exploratory teaching style.
