Embroidered Houses

AccessArt Village project

House embroideries which have been mounted in readiness for the AccessArt Village exhibition

Some Art Cabin students took part in AccessArt’s Village Project back in the summer.

“The aim of the project is simple: to inspire the AccessArt audience of all ages (children , teenagers and adults) to embroider a line drawing of their home on a 20 cm square piece of fabric.”

We recently received a photo of our embroidered houses cut out and mounted as models, ready to be be part of AccessArt’s Village exhibition which will tour the UK.

If you would like to be part of this project, you can find information on the AccessArt website here.

Accessart are once again spearheading a participatory project for 2016 called the AccessArt Village that involves embroidery. Appletons Wools have kindly donated wool for the project, I have a few students here at the Art Cabin who are taking part.

“The aim of the project is simple: to inspire the AccessArt audience of all ages (children , teenagers and adults) to embroider a line drawing of their house on a 20 cm square piece of fabric. The sewn squares can then be sent to AccessArt, where textile artists will work the squares together to make an AccessArt Village artwork.”.

The artwork will go on display around the UK in 2017. AccessArt are inviting galleries, museums, libraries, arts centres, schools and libraries to get in touch if they would like to host the AccessArt Village Textile. How exciting!
