June 2016 – Lydia Brockless and Sophie Giller were commissioned to produce new works for a duo exhibition at the newly-reopened Lady Beck project space, run by Assembly House, Leeds.

For Soft Rocks, Sophie and Lydia set out to limit their use of materials to only textiles, soap and wax, resulting in an interplay of soft textiles with hardness and transformative processes. Both have used textiles extensively in their previous work, with an interest in manipulating fabrics and fibres.
