Rainbow Haven

The cloth is at home in East Manchester where Rainbow Haven are based. There are over 60 signatures and names sewn onto the cloth, all varied in composition and design, reflecting the mix of participants and those involved in the project. Countries range from China, to Eritrea and the Czech Republic.  The cloth was displayed to the public in Manchester town hall in January 2012

Of course my great ideas rapidly change with each collaboration, some of the visitors to Rainbow Haven have not had any formal education so writing their name is  not something they have experience of, let alone a fluid signature. Nevertheless hand embroidery is something most women have knowledge of and with help from friends are able copy their name onto the cloth to stitch.
