Many thanks to a generous donation from Appletons Wools, AccesArt is launching a year-long participatory project for 2016 called the AccessArt Village.
We know our audience comes from all walks of life and from lots of different countries, and we’d love to create an artwork which celebrates that diversity.
The aim of the project is simple: to inspire the AccessArt audience of all ages (children , teenagers and adults) to embroider a line drawing of their home on a 20 cm square piece of fabric. The sewn squares can then be sent to AccessArt, where textile artists will work the squares together to make an AccessArt Village artwork.
The project will run throughout 2016 so you have plenty of time to send us your individual squares. You can join in as a group (for example consider using the project as part of an afterschool club, or with your local sewing group), or as a creative individual.
