The Heart of Hepworth

The embroidered cloth and poems that resulted from this collaboration were displayed in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery in June 2013. Working on the project, over the last six month with poet Shamshad Khan and a group of women in the Falinge area of Rochdale has been very interesting. The outcomes, not just cloth and words but also in terms of discussions and sharing are so varied and wonderful. It is good to work with someone from a different creative discipline, sharing ideas, thoughts and methods.

It is amazing how the sewing is such a positive method, it seems to engage everyone and make the words flow as a result. The build up has been very measured but as we near the end of the project, everyone seems to have enjoyed the process and we have shared so much, I will be sorry it is finished.
