Fantastic workshop with "Sampler Culture Clash"

I was delighted to be invited to participate in the "Sampler Culture Clash" workshop at the "Golden Thread Gallery" in Belfast on the 22nd of July. The workshop coincided with the exhibition "Changing Art and Minds" by the "Support for Women" project at the Leitrim Design House.

Artists David Littler and Yusra Warsama led participants through a process of interpreting their responses to the work on exhibition and translating these written words into cross-stitch samplers.

The cross-stitch patterns were also made into a tape which feeds into a piano player machine to create music.

Words also came together to form 'poems' which were recorded to create a soundtrack to accompany the exhibition when it moves to the Leitrim Design House for the opening on 19th August at 5.30pm. You are welcome to attend!
