Hexagons & Aprons

Over the past few weeks I have been painstakingly working on a new piece of work for an exhibition which is very soon to open in the Staffordshire area. The above image is just a detail, to see the real deal you'll have to visit the exhibition. This apron has taken me several weeks to complete, it has been specially made for this exhibition. It is all hand patchworked and then hand embroidered.

Here's a bit of information about the exhibition itself..

Ties that bind - Aprons, stories and hidden lives’ Exhibition at Unit Twelve.
The Private View of this exhibition is Saturday 5th Nov, 2-4pm.
Ties that bind is a curated display of recent and newly-created aprons inspired by women’s lives, published stories, personal memories and imagined futures. Twelve contemporary designer-makers will exhibit aprons using print, paper and stitch.

Ties that bind will reveal twelve different responses to the idea of aprons, through the work of a diverse group of makers, each with their own personal reasons for engaging with this garment form. The use of textile techniques draws these diverse makers together, but their sources, meanings and interpretations will generate a thought-provoking
exploration of the humble apron. It runs from 3 rd November 2011- 28 th Jan 2012 .
