Tapestry: In Conversation – with Linda Green

During our conversations we find out how our guests approach their work, what inspires them, what techniques they favour and why. Hear the stories behind some of their work and have a chance to ask questions.

This month we are returning to Edinburgh to talk to Linda Green . Linda describes herself as a textile artist. Tapestry weaving is core to her creative practice, but her work often incorporates other media including drawing and painting. She works in many different textile materials and many of her pieces are structural, moving away from a flat and clean bordered tapestry to something altogether more diverse.
Linda’s textile training began with the Edinburgh College of Art Diploma in Tapestry, before she went on to complete a post graduate MA in Textiles at the Royal College of Art in London. She spent many years teaching in art colleges before setting up her own studio in Edinburgh in 2009. In the time since then, she has exhibited widely in the UK and further afield.
We will be talking to her about the way her work has evolved, her inspiration for her often quite engineered pieces, her experience as part of the Cordis Tapestry Prize and also her mixed media approach. We will also find out about what brought her into tapestry weaving (and beyond) in the first place.
