WINDOWS OF HOPE
Windows of Hope is a series of hand embroidered artworks representing the power of hope during the great lockdown. 2020 has been an unprecedented year with many of us having been stuck inside the home looking out of the window to the same quiet and deserted scenery. Each morning as we view the sun rising, it provides a little glimmer of golden hope showing that better times are ahead. The certainty of the sun rising, as it has done for millennia, has provided reassurance that the world will keep turning and we will get through these strange and uncertain times.
Goldwork embroidery is used as it is a traditional and exquisite craft which is fitting to embody the theme of hope. It is often utilized for Ecclesiastical textiles which are used by those who choose to follow and share their faith which is exactly what the world currently needs.
