This exhibition showcases the work of the Stitch and Think research group whose aim is to identify and explore the values and current contemporary thinking about hand-making skills reflected through the discipline of stitch. The group is made up of applied artists and design makers, with staff from the Department of Creative Industries at the University of the West of England, Bristol. The trend of make-do-and-mend is a way of keeping traditional skills alive and giving objects new life.
The exhibition is celebrated through a series of related talks and workshops and draws on the various pieces of ceramics, glass and textiles on display in the museum.
