Carol is a textile artist and researcher who makes and studies lace. She exhibits widely and has 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 focusses on the history, manufacture and design of lace, net curtains and lace panels. Her practice is inspired by nineteenth-century gothic fiction, veiling, domesticity, women’s history and subversive stitching.
Carol was recently commissioned to produce a contemporary response to the Battle of Britain commemorative lace panel and its associated archive material, which toured to three venues. Following a research trip to Japan she is currently producing work for Tansa: Japanese threads of influence, the miniatures section of which will be exhibited at the Craft Study Centre, Farnham and Gallery Gallery in Kyoto.
