Bridget Lane

by | Mar 1, 2024

Bridget Lane designs and weaves contemporary tapestries. Each piece is unique and handwoven on an upright frame. Influenced by the forms of late Modernism, her work is a response to the seemingly mundane, a way of reinterpreting the world.

She often incorporates circular forms and clear lines in her work, which is a challenging construct in grid-based tapestry weaving. Intensity of colour is an important aspect of her work, and Bridget continues to explore how visually simple forms can be enhanced with divergent colour tones. She invites the viewer to embark on a journey of discovery into a woven world of shapes and forms, potentially reassessing the art of tapestry.

She learnt her craft at West Dean College of Art & Conservation in Sussex. Since winning the Cordis Prize Showcase, she has exhibited work in the UK and Australia, and is a selected Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.

Based in London, she regularly teaches tapestry weaving courses, from beginners to advanced level, alongside her making practice and enjoys helping others develop their own journey in woven textiles.
