The Sewing Circle exhibition has been two years in the planning and now the wait is over. Twenty-four artists, both young and old, of all genders, using traditional and contemporary methods of needlework and sewing, have created a real time warp of the old and the new.
Call it old-fashioned or breaking the rules, it is all here in The Sewing Circle. The exhibition is likely to overturn many (mis) conceptions of the arts of sewing and needlework and raise questions about gender, politics and beauty.
The exhibition features work by professional, as well as self-taught outsider artists, students from St Martin’s, Chelsea and Kingston Schools of Fine Art and includes a display of original needlework cards from WW1.
Opening night: 13 Friday November 5.00 to 8.30pm features a live set of laid back cool jazz sounds by local Kentish Town musicians Lady and the Tramp.
When: The exhibition is open 16 November 2015 to 14 January 2016, Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm with the exception of Christmas and New Years Day.
Where:The Conference Centre, St Pancras Hospital, 4 St Pancras Way, London NW1 OPE (Buses 46/ 214, Tube Kings Cross/Mornington Crescent)
