Made during the first lockdown and as a response to workshops delivered by various artists at TEXTILES.ORG.
Beach themed , reflecting on family holidays prior to lockdown. This piece was a family effort. The boys painted the background using handmade paintbrushes. The sections stitched together by my youngest.
The scroll includes images of the children playing in the sand, items of clothing, drawings by the children and memories of place and time. A variety of techniques have been used such as couching, appliqué, free motion, embroidery, fabric dying and sun printing.
