Programme 2023

Jamie Chalmers – Stitch your story!

In a public call out, people from all over the world were invited to share their own story of migration and belonging in this crowd-sourced collection of stitched hoops curated by Jamie Chalmers (Mr X Stitch), featuring representations from people’s journeys and reflections on their personal heritage.

Using a 6” hoop, stitchers were encouraged to share the stories of how they ended up where they are now, whether their journey was across continents or down the street, in a literal depiction or an abstract impression.

Find out more about the stories behind the hoops at the online exhibition here.
