19 February – 14 March
Thursday – Sunday 11am – 4pm
In March 2020 everything changed. We have had to embrace armchair wandering instead of travelling. These times have called for a different kind of gathering. For a daily gift that lifts the spirit. For handwork that transforms the old and tired into something fresh and just a bit magical.
Initiated by India Flint, this exhibition shares tea-towels, humble utilitarian domestic textiles, that have been the companions of their stitchers during ‘the Great Pause’. Created by a group linked by a common thread around a virtual village well, using supplies found by rummaging in the ragbag (or the back of the closet), in the tea-towel drawer or in the linen-press. Making do with the resources found in hearts and home.
