This piece will illustrate what is known about the life of Lily M Roberts though the creation of a mixed media wall hanging with an emphasis on beading and embroidery.
The work will depict the facts as well as speculate other outcomes as a kind of ‘working map’ of thoughts and conclusions about what Lily and her family experienced. The outcome will take on the spirit of this young child, presenting a naive and playful story yet created using a variety of techniques as well as a critical process of design.
A variety of stitches will be seen as well as some elements of beading created using a bead loom. The materials selected for the work will be of a high standard with an absence of any synthetic material or fibre so it may be in keeping with the materials used by that of a Draper. Tonally the hanging will aim to blend with the interior yet express a definite individuality amongst the other features of the building. The back ground of the handing will be mostly a soft white with colours added through embellishment.
Overall the work will frame the freeness and vividity of Lily’s youth and haziness of her existence set against the permanence of a structure that helped formed her.
