Wear My Heart (Red Rose) Upon My Sleeve
Date: Saturday 22 September
Time: 12pm - 6pm
Location: The Harris
Personal reflections on what the region means to people and their encounters will be captured through conversations by Joanne Neil. The artist will get you involved with drawing activities, object handling, social media tagging and a confessional vox pop booth.
A selection of individual contributions of spoken words, text and imagery will be collated and woven into a narrative, representing a 'Bayeux Tapestry' of Lancashire in 2018. These constructed landscapes will be presented as a series of stitched drawings by hand and machine.
Inspired by the Chinese Embroidered sleeve bands (1799-1900) in the Harris costume and textiles collection, these constructed narratives will be presented as a series of contemporary sleeve bands.
