Exhibition: Stitch to the Future @ The Attic

Saturday 15 – Thursday 27 September 2012

Twenty-first Century children embrace the traditional skills of stitching and crafting to create work reflecting a wide range of inspiration from cupcakes to cyber-space. This exhibition challenges the apparently damaging influence of computer games and TV and celebrates the creativity of “kids these days”.  The work has all been created at Stitch Clubs and Workshops run by Stitch-London.

 

Where: The Attic at Lines of Pinner, 26 High St Pinner, HA5 5PW

When: Sat 16 – Thurs 27 September 2012

Open: Mon-Sat 9am-5:30pm

Have a look at these photos from the exhibition

Textile Artist and Stitchclub teacher Sam Harvey is also exhibiting with the children who constantly inspire and challenge her with colours, textures and ideas. Sam uses a range of techniques to create stitched and collaged sculptures and pictures which celebrate the texture and quirkiness of the world around us. She is particularly excited to be showing her first ‘interactive stitched sculpture’. Mr Wolf really does know the time!
