Very many thanks to everyone who sent us a stitched image of their house or favourite building for the AccessArt Village, the response to the project has been astonishing and we now have received well over 750 contributions!
Each stitched drawing is as individual as its maker and the variety in colour, scale and technique creates a fascinating and impressive artwork, juxtaposing pieces by children at the start of their creative lives next to those of accomplished older generations.
Highlighting the character and individuality of each house, the project also celebrates the diversity of our audience and reminds us of the universal sanctity of ‘home’. Most poignant are those houses created by individuals who for reasons of health or vulnerability, were away from home when they made their creations.
