Artist Candace Bahouth, designer at the iconic Erhman Tapestries for over 25 years presents a lively, illustrated lecture exploring the development of her work over her career. Candace will describe how a love of woven tapestry inspired her own strikingly original hand-woven designs, bold both in subject matter and colour palette, before she moved into translating her ideas into needlepoint as a designer for Erhman Tapestries. Candace will reflect on the differences and similarities of woven tapestry and needlepoint, and what her latest artistic development into mosaics has in common with both these textile art forms.

A number of Candace Bahouth’s woven tapestries belong in the V&A’s collection, and she has exhibited in numerous shows , in London and nationally, including a solo show at the American Museum and has her second show with Kaffe Fassett at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, in May 2018.
