Carol is a textile artist and researcher who makes and studies lace. She has recently completed a practice based PhD at UCA Farnham entitled ‘The domestic veil: exploring the net curtain through the uncanny and the gothic’. Carol’s post-doctoral research studies the history, manufacture and design of net curtains and lace panels. Her current practice is based on veiling, inspired by nineteenth-century gothic fiction.
Carol has recently been commissioned to produce a contemporary response to the Battle of Britain commemorative lace panel and its associated archive material. She has been awarded a Professional Development Award by The Textile Society to further this work. Her new panels and associated installation will be exhibited at Wollaton Hall, Gawthorpe Hall, and Bentley Priory during 2018 and 2019. During 2018 Carol will also be exhibiting at the World Lace Congress in Bruges and at the Makit Christmas Fair at Cranmore Park.
In her blog lacethread Carol discusses exhibitions, events and activities related to her practice.
