On my last visit to Stornoway I had the pleasure of seeing this great exhibition of Tom Hickman’s work. Tom has a studio on the outskirts of Stornoway full of his tools of the trade and home to many of his works. An Lanntair brought together an amazing collection showing the breadth of his work in their gallery, mainly ‘narrative stump-work embroideries of biblical scenes, from the Garden of Eden to Noah’s Ark to the Nativity’. Alongside this were beautiful embroidered, patch worked and furniture. My favorite were the boxes covered in embroidery (photo below).
