Hello, I am working in the area creating FABRIC WALK as part of the Place Space and Identity Project that is running across Stoke on Trent this summer.
Fabric is going to be a large scale intervention into the landscape, based on the collected stories and memories of local residents a walk is going to be mapped out by wrapping natural and urban features in Fabric.
‘Fabric Walk’ explores the idea that sewing, wrapping, repairing, folding, covering are inherently caring and restorative actions and combines this with the the act of walking; a physical challenge to the occupation with speed and having to get places fast.
I am looking for volunteers to help install this piece of work.
When: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th September 2011
Where: Based at Midland Heart Offices, Duncalf Street, Burslem and outside in streets/parks
Times: 10am – 5pm (10am – 1.30pm or 1.30pm – 5pm.)
Some basic sewing skills are desirable but not essential as it is more important that you don’t mind working outside and are comfortable with small amounts of problem solving.
Travel expenses will be reimbursed, tea and coffee will be provided and those doing full days with the artist will have lunch paid for.
