Sue Lancaster

As a textile artist I use machine embroidery to create decorative and functional works. I am a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.

I have worked as a textile artist since graduating in embroidery from Loughborough in 1975. I have taught at all levels and pursued my own practice throughout this time. In 2020 I decided to stop teaching in order to concentrate on exhibiting and selling my work. I have been a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen (first started by William Morris and Walter Crane) since 1996 and was awarded a Fellowship with them in 2013 for my services to textiles. My philosophy is very much inline with the original Arts and Crafts Movement and I take pride in producing well designed and crafted work which is fit for purpose. The purpose of my works can be decorative, as in wall hung work expected for a domestic setting, or functional, as in fashion accessories. All my work develops from observational drawings and paintings, usually of the land or sea.
