Beliefs and Values
As a hand embroidery practitioner, Lucy advocates ethical and sustainable practice. Where possible, Lucy uses recycled and donated materials to reduce waste. Being environmentally conscious is at the forefront of her material choices. An example is shown within her Goldwork embroidery pieces- the materials are imitation purls to reduce the need for mining precious metals. Where new products have to be bought, Lucy sources her materials from small and family-run businesses.
