Conversations with Lorraine Roy, textile artist

One of the beautiful things about this project has been the surprising ways it connects with people across the world. We were delighted when textile artist Lorraine Roy got in touch from Ontario, Canada, to tell us that she was so inspired by the project that she wanted to make a piece of art for each word!

Hear Neville and Philippa talk to Lorraine about her love of nature and the process of making her unique and beautiful art. See the full gallery of pieces online, or in person at the Elora Art Center, Ontario, Canada (July-September 2023).

All the words

“This wall piece pulls together all the ideas behind this project. All the words, growing from the earth, drawn up by trees and nature, and released through our communications and relationships. Here are all the colours, all the words, all the world.”
