Lucy Goffin and Barbara Kennington

Working individually and as Material Being, a unique combination of textile experience.

Lucy Goffin’s background is embedded in textile creation; her intricately detailed and hand stitched work sensitively pieces together layers of fabric and colour. 

Barbara Kennington trained in fashion design and has enjoyed a long career tracking colour and fabric trends. Her more recent work explores abstracted mark-making translated onto material.

As Material Being, Lucy and Barbara recognise the desire to wear individually crafted garments that directly connect the wearer and the makers, creating unique contemporary items that will withstand the pressure of time and fashion.
