Patchwork takes different fabrics and connects them, creating something beautiful and useful. #PatchworkDevon is a new project about carrying our priorities forward – together.
We are now offering bookable workshops to make patchwork bags together, representative of the literal landscapes of Devon as well as our figurative aspirations for our shared future post-pandemic. A number of the workshops will be at locations where you can see the Quarantine Quilts in person.
In a moment where our sense of our world seemed to be falling to pieces, with the Quarantine Quilt Project we picked up the fragments, and we could see our priorities. In tandem we individually recorded what we cared about. Individuals then entrusted these thoughts back to Significant Seams artists. With threads, empathy, and artistry, we connected these insights into the artwork that is ‘The Quarantine Quilts.’
We now have sponsorship in place enabling a wide variety of people to attend these latest project workshops for FREE, generally by referral from front-line service organisations.
We also have funding to help qualifying individuals to access transport support to attend.
