Running with Thread
Nicola Moody worked on Running With Thread in collaboration with parkrun Luton and Wardown House Museum. Through this project funded by the Luton Arts Fund, Nicola translated the language of running into the language of textiles. She gained data from 3 different participants of parkrun . Focusing on the runners time, length of stride and heart rate she created 3 woven hangings and accompanying textworks. This work was created whilst in residence at the Museum, where Nicola was able to engage with the visitors and the visitors were able to engage with weaving themselves by having a go at The Community Weave. All of this work was then exhibited at Wardown House in a special 3 month long exhibition.
