Can you help?
LIVE PROJECT #1 - 18 at Heart
Let’s yarn bomb the no. 18 bus route!
We are recruiting stitchers aged 50+ from Selly Oak District to stitch hundreds of colourful and unique tapestry hearts to hang from trees, lampposts and put up in windows at intervals along a 5.5 mile stretch of the No. 18 bus route to create a public art trail later in 2020.
LIVE PROJECT #2 – Home is Where the Arch Is!
During 2020 we need hundreds of Northfield residents and neighbours to stitch a tapestry brick for a collaborative ‘arch’ artwork and contribute to a local archive of community memories as part of the Northfield Revealed project. We are inviting people to take part who live in one of the following postcode areas: B31, B22, B29, B30, B32, B38, B45.
LIVE PROJECT #3 - Stitch Train Worcestershire
Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership (WCRP) has commissioned Woolly Mammoth Stitch Works CIC to bring together existing WCRP volunteers and new friends across Worcestershire to take part in a large-scale community tapestry stitch project – remotely!
We have set ourselves a bit of a challenge! 300 pieces stitched by 300 volunteers living in Worcestershire to create two massive trains – each at 11.5m in length. That’s 23m of tapestry train!
You will have to wait until after 31st July if you are not already an existing volunteer with Worcestershire Community Rail Partnership – they get first dibs! Then we will be doing an open call for other people age 16+ who live in Worcestershire to get involved.
Shadow artist opportunities
During live projects Tina Francis would like to offer ‘shadow’ opportunities to help emerging artists with an interest in stitch media projects to develop their practice.
