Hitchin priory - A Landscape Through Time

By Linda Gifford

My textile pieces were inspired by and reflect different times and events in Hitchin Park. In Hertfordshire Archives I found images of Priory Park spanning over 200 years including a lovely pencil drawing and a dramatic watercolour in black and white from 1780 which I studied closely when developing my ideas This project has allowed me to revisit familiar techniques and explore new ones, including textile printing and painting, transfer printing and free machine embroidery.
