Creating Links by Heather Black

 Heather has been taking part in a joint project between the WI and Chelsea College of Art.

Students and WI members worked on a number of the themed campaigns championed by the Women's Institute to bring about social and political change. Heather elected to work on the theme of  combatting loneliness. 

Creating Links by Heather Black



Heather made a series of links made from naturally dyed fabrics - weld, madder and indigo - with buttons and buttonholes so the can be linked and relinked as friendships are formed. All hand stitched.

A virtual gallery of all the work made as part of this joint project is planned.
