Rachel Scott: Weaving My World

19 Nov - 11 Feb 2023

Wed – Sat, 10 am – 1 pm and 2 – 4 pm

Make, Somerset

‘Making things by hand for me is the only way and has been since I was a child. What else would I do with my time?’—Rachel Scott


Rachel Scott’s hands are forever busy. She weaves every morning and spends her evenings spinning wool for the following day’s weaving, all in a small studio at the top of her house in Pimlico, London. ‘weaving my world’ is a homage to Scott’s individual style of homemaking. Just like the floors, walls and spaces of her domestic life, the exhibition celebrates her vast creative output, including handwoven rugs, braided rag rugs, knitted patchwork covered chairs and cushions, bags, scarves, patchwork dresses, woollen suits, tea and chess sets, and early paintings dating from the 1960s.
