Tapestry kit - Grayson Perry
“I think when we talk of craft, we talk of a certain set of processes, whether that be clay or glass or jewelry or textiles… and we look back through history instantly”
Wonderful, Grayson Perry CBE RA is the well known, wonderfully eccentric yet down-to-earth English artist, writer and broadcaster. I have portrayed him as ‘Claire’, his female alter-ego. As well as being totally transfixed by his work, he also appeals greatly to my love of eccentricity. Original individuals that these islands were once known for, are becoming a rarity, as thought and deed become more homogenised. Grayson is a great reminder to be authentic and bold and not follow the herd.
This kit is worked in tent stitch and includes a 12hpi colour printed canvas, Appleton Wools, needles and instructions.
The finished design measures 30cm x 35cm (12 x 14 inches) approx.
