STITCHES IN TIME - LOCKDOWN PROJECT - THE BY-YOU TAPESTRY
One of our partners at In The Neighbourhood are the fantastic, Stitches in Time. Based in Tower Hamlets, Stitches in Time began as a small sewing experiment between strangers, that grew into the creation of 50 tapestries made by over 3,000 local people. Today they now engage with over 2,000 people per year but they are so much more than a sewing club. Stitches in Time offer a safe, supportive space to develop creative skills, meet new people, and support the needs and goals of the participants.
Whilst in lockdown, the creativity has continued with their new project, the By You Tapestry. Stitches in Time are inviting people to embroider their experience of isolation and the things they have cherished to become part of a huge tapestry that will result in a vibrant work of art that represents this unforgettable moment in time. might one day rival the French one...
What started as an activity to cope with the struggles of COVID-19 has now transformed into a global project with submissions from Spain and Florida and the great thing is that anyone can take part regardless of experience.
Below we have two activity packs for you to get involved, one for adults and one for kids.
