SHELTER DOMESTICS

Online exhibition opening 1 June

1 June to 12 July 2020

Turning gendered semiotics and the genre works of domestic settings on its head, Shelter Domestics examines the unusual current situation of home life where boundaries of the private and the public are blurred and at times, interchanged. It brings to the fore how the intimate space of the home is now claimed as a multi-functional site of work, entertainment and personal refuge.

TESTIMONIALS
I want to thank you for a thoroughly delightful day being introduced to the art of Boro rice bag making.
I have spent the better part of my waking hours since Thursday stitching, contemplating, evaluating, adorning, and ultimately completing my bag this morning. These have been utterly tranquil hours. I think it is the combination of creating a pleasing composition, the focus and repetition of stitching, the  knowledge that each recycled material has a history, the invitation to fine-tune and personalise with adornments, and the joy of creation that made this such a rewarding experience.
It was a pleasure to meet you and exchange ideas.
Robin

 

Very inspirational.

Please put me on the wait list for the December workshop.

Just a big thank you for your time, skill, taste and patience, all given freely at your engrossing workshop.
I would love to attend more in the future.
