Loss and Inheritance Exhibition Workshop

As part of a collective MA show “Loss and Inheritance” at The Craft and Design Centre, Louisa co-designed and led workshops with fellow students to co-inside with the exhibition. The aim of the workshop was to make a quilt made up of patches where participants shared their memories of skills taught to them by loved ones, which they’d like to pass on to others. These memories were then stitched onto squares. The workshops was inspired by the quote: “My life is like a patchwork – you never know how it is going to turn out”. Louisa’s contributed square is shown below, which was created with my mother in mind who taught me to sew and embroider a skill which I cherish. Each square was stitched together by the group on a sewing machine and displayed in the space during the exhibition to add to the ongoing conversation about ‘inheritance’.
