Former Xaverian Student, Lucy George will be hosting her first debut solo exhibition, Time, Line, and Stitch.

She is working on crochet and handknit projects for Yorkshire based Wool Couture whose backers include Dragon’s Den entrepreneurs, Touker Suleyman and Tej Lavani.

Shaun Steele, Art Divisional Lead, said:

“Lucy joined Xaverian in September 2017, studying A Level Fine Art and Textiles. She is an extremely talented artist but is also very modest. Her natural ability allied to her tremendous work ethic, willingness to experiment and explore processes and techniques; means that she has a hugely promising future in the world of Art and Design.”

Lucy said:

The tutors at Xaverian College enriched, widened and strengthened my skills in drawing, painting, print and constructed textiles. The overseas trip to New York enabled me to view many significant works in art history which have subsequently influenced my practice as an artist, especially the works of Sarah Sze and David Tudor with their installation pieces. 

We are proud of our student success, Lucy is an A* student, we look forward to seeing more of her wonderful work.
