Time & Tide brings together a collection of works inspired by the coastline and its unique stories, The Yorkshire Coast has been a strong influence in Hayley’s life since childhood…
“For a long as I can remember I have been inspired by the Yorkshire coastline. My childhood holidays were spent by the sea, playing in the sand and collecting shells and pebbles.”
As an adult, Hayley makes regular trips to Whitby, Scarborough and Runswick Bay, walking the beaches collecting rope, ceramic fragments and rusted metal. In the studio she captures the memories of these trips using digital embroidery, hand stitching and the objects themselves, forming a collection of work that shows her strong connection to the coastline.
