Work from Make Do and Mend

Make Do and Mend

Studio Seven

Exhibited from 16 January - 28 February, 2010

Admission: £3 (£2 children & concessions)

'Make Do and Mend' first appeared at Stroud Valleys Artspace in Stroud, as part of the 2008 Stroud International Textile Festival. 

Inspired by the local textile heritage of the Stroud valleys, this installation focuses on the themes of weavers and weaving, woollen mills, the use of Stroud Scarlet cloth for military uniforms, women working in industry during wartime, and the ethos of 'make do and mend'. These thematic threads are brought together by the seven artists into a unified world of images and ideas which the audience is invited to explore. 

Enter an Alice in Wonderland-like rabbit hole world or 'eat me, drink me' instructions; of objects out of scale and out of place; of looms and pulleys, fragments and whispers; of animated dummies and mechanical garments; or warp and weft weaving and unravelling across a textile landscape. Add your own unique touch to the installation, which will grow and change every day. 

The seven artists are: Liz Lippiatt, Kathryn Clarke, Jenny Bicât, Anne Rogers, Sarah Cant, Sarah Cooke, Corinne Hockley.
