On The Mend - Newfoundland - Craft Residency 2018

About this project

‘On The Mend’  I was awarded (for the 2nd time), a craft residency in Newfoundland for the Crafts Council of Newfoundland and Labrador. Based at the Julia Ann Walsh Centre, an old cottage hospital, my temporary studio was in the hospital museum room. Combining the idea of hospital and textiles, I organised a community based residency, inviting the public to bring their woollen garments in for mending.

I was overwhelmed by the community spirit and stories shared while mending.
