Lynn Setterington

Lynn Setterington is a major British textile artist known for her hand-stitched quilts and collaborations with community organisations and museums. Her work interrogates social injustices, celebrates the overlooked and draws on popular culture and folk and textile history. She has undertaken commissions and partnerships with numerous groups and worked with The University of Nebraska, Belsay Hall, Northumberland, the Bronte Parsonage Museum, Rochdale Borough Council, North Yorkshire County Records office and Sreepur in Bangladesh. Setterington’s work is held in many leading museum collections including the V&A, Terrance Higgins Trust, Denver Museum of Art and the IQSC in the US. Her doctoral study at the University for the Creative Arts utilises her longstanding experience to examine the tensions and hidden values in shared embroidery practice.
