Joining the network of embroideries

During their residency, Skart met friends and new acquaintance to talk about personal thoughts and public woes. These conversations then led to devising short two line rhymes and drawings. Some of the 'embroideries' were made by the people we met, while others we made ourselves in response to the meetings.

People who got involved included students from the London College of Communication; residents of Dayton Court and Adelaide Court (Hanover in Hackney) and other individual activists, artists and writers.

Here are some of the pieces. We used 3-D paint/pens to make them as it was a lot quicker than embroidery and has a similar effect! This reflects the speed at which people in London move - there's no time to fit in such a slow activity as embroidery!
