We had a bit of a day out last week – the first for ages as we’ve been hard at work on the WOWbook. It was great to be out in the world again, particularly as we went to see Alice Kettle’s ‘Thread Bearing Witness’ at the Winchester Discovery Centre. This is the first venue for the touring exhibition which will conclude in the Autumn at the Whitworth in Manchester.
I am basing my offering on a larger piece I made using techniques from my Tall Tales and Long Diaries book (d4daisy.com). My granddad was an officer in the Royal Navy and kept a diary all through the first world war.I scanned some of the pages and also made some ‘vintage’ pieces of stitching for the work. It’s a very personal piece and I plan to make copies for my cousins. I shall take a photo of it to print on A4 cotton and add more stitching.
