Women's Work? is a large framed piece of textile artwork that explores the history of embroidery and the changing attitudes towards it. Women's Work? is a research based artwork designed to be read as a journal article and is therefore typed on a vintage typewriter (a suggestion at another traditional role of women), complemented with hand embroidery. The work takes the reader through the highly sought after Medieval ecclesiastical embroidery of Great Britain through the demise of trade, to use as Victorian samplers to teach girls to read and write before celebrating the slowly changing views that once more embroidery is a valuable art form.

Women's work creates intrigue - initially seeming to cite embroidery as women's work before concluding that embroidery is art. A statement piece of artwork encouraging reflection, questioning and contemplation. Ideal for the study, lounge, bedroom or entrance hall, Women's Work is perfect for those who enjoy artwork that inspires consideration and that ensures conversation. Measuring approximately 70 x 32 centimetres and is ready to hang on the wall.
