Judy Barry: EMB 2.01

This slide is from the section of the VRC’s slide collection that records final year student work. From 1975, it shows a quirky mitre made by Helyn Kenyon in response to a project involving history and the architectural details within a church interior. It is hand worked, made of silk, with raised leather appliqué, metal threads and some Italian Quilting. It reflects so well this particular student’s personality, tackling what might have seemed a daunting project, with humour, individuality and skill.

Judy Barry

Embroidery Lecturer, 1966-2005
