Chloe McCormick

Chloe McCormick is producing the most interesting tapestry work I've seen in a long time. A recent graduate of the inspiring MA Textile Futures course at Central St Martins, her work has rightly been garnering a lot of attention across the mainstream and specialist press. Embracing rapid prototyping technology Chloe has created laser sintered nylon structures which act as warp threads into which she weaves her weft yarns. This is a link to a very informative interview explaining her background and the ideas that feed into her practice:–-warped-tapestry

  1. I'm not in the least tired of traditional wall-hanging tapestries as she says she is in her piece, but I'd love to see these in real life, they look beautiful and very interesting.
    Am still contemplating an MA at the tapestry weaving studio at West Dean, so nice to see this, thanks Laura.
