Lynn Setterington

Lynn Setterington is a British textile artist particularly known for her hand-stitched cloths and Kantha quilts celebrating the ordinary and everyday. Lynn's work is held in many collections including the V&A Museum. She trained at Goldsmiths College and is an Associate Fellow of the International Quilt Study Center in Nebraska.

My work uses largely hand-stitched processes and celebrates the non- machine made mark. For the last decade I have specialised in devising large-scale pubic engagement projects working with groups from culturally diverse backgrounds.

I am drawn to colour, pattern, folk art and popular culture, ranging from hand painted shop signs, to folk costume, outsider art and well dressings.
