Sketching and Stitching

20 10 2010

I’ve done about 20 interviews and sessions meeting and drawing with traders and am now listening to those and working on some large scale works on cloth for installation in 10 New Street on the 10th November.

Ive been sketching using embroidery, sewing with cotton on cotton. Cotton manufacturing was once an important industry in Lancaster and Lancashire and literally stitching up the stories seemed right as a response to all the conversations about the skills, knowledge and unique relationships the traders and their customers have. Over the next 2 weeks I’ll be posting more about the individual conversations and some audio clips as well as images and sketches from the project research.
