Here are some recent projects & exhibitions we have delivered with different groups & organisations
CHAI & CHAT
Chai & Chat Exhibition with GemArts GVEMSG at Gateshead Library until Oct 2019
This exhibition presents textile artwork inspired by each family’s unique chai recipe. Each piece includes a collection of handmade elements where fabrics printed with herbs, sits alongside stitching, crochet and family photographs, handwritten recipes and fragments of maps of South Asia.
The group printed on fabric and used fabric paints, embroidery, beads, sequins, quilting, ribbons and other embellishments to decorate & finish their prints. As they worked, the peacocks, birds, elephants, trees, flowers, hearts, fish & patterns came to life with vibrant colours and gold lustre to create a collective ‘Paradise Garden’.
Portholes to the Past
The group made drypoint prints focusing on the impact of WWI on Wallsend. Research & background information was provided by Northumbria WWI Project
These were displayed in the Hearts at Peace exhibition at Segedunum, Wallsend until May 2019
