jennie's pattern low res

In response to Aisha Khalid’s latest exhibition at The Whitworth Art Gallery, I’m working with Asian ladies from The Roby community centre in Longsight. Together we visited the exhibition and enjoyed a tour with curator, Jennifer Harris. We’re now developing textile work in print and stitch, exploring the themes of domesticity, pattern and identity.

The demonstration piece above features a printed background based on my kitchen floor, plus an embroidered repeat of my dog.
