Lucy Gundry – Bath Spa University

Personal statement

Dr Lucy Gundry is an Associate Lecturer in Mixed Media Textiles on BA Creative Arts Practice at Bath Spa University. Lucy lectures and tutors mixed media textile students to develop a reflexive synthesis between method, material and meaning in their studio practice.

Lucy is interested in the relationship between body, dress and self as a fabricated skin, formed through the act of dressing and worn out in the everyday. Her doctoral research focused on the haptic aesthetics of dress as grasped communication observed through seeing but not touching dress in the museum. Current research interests include 'rescuing' dress through 'wear wise' initiatives and teaching through meaning.
