Quilting/The Laundry Pile Exhibition, Huddersfield 24th June – 13th July

 Quilting Together: Studies of Communal Quilting

Where:-   Temporary Contemporary Gallery, Queensgate Market, Huddersfield

When:-             Mon 24 June – Sat 13 July

Contact:-           n.l.perren@hud.ac.uk / #perrennicola

The Quilting Together exhibition presents a selection of quilts and drawings made by Nicola Perren in response to a series of hand-made quilts made by the Meltham Quilting Bee, the experience of being a part of this group of makers and an investigation into amateurism.

Key concepts explored within the exhibition are amateurcommunal making and autonomy.

As a part of the exhibition, a new quilt will be constructed and all visitors (no experience necessary) will be invited to do some hand sewing and contribute to the quilt making (if they wish).

The Laudry Pile

Looking beyond the everyday mundanities of doing the laundry, The Laundry Pile brings together a range of work from a small group of fashion activists, theorists and researchers. It includes a mix of photography, garments, illustration and performance to explore the relationship between laundry, fashion and nature, and questions how we can collectively tackle these issues.
