Same Sea, Different Boat tells the epic story of the worldwide pandemic that put the world into lockdown through textiles, print and thread.
During this 30-minute talk, the artists behind the project, Harley Studio artist Louise Asher (Hope & Elvis), textile artist Liske Johnson (Littleheath Barn Studio) and artist Sue Brown (theyard: Artspace, Cheltenham) will discuss how they engaged a community of participants to contribute towards a textile installation that reflected personal experiences during the Covid-19 outbreak. Little did they know, it would become an international textile storyboard telling the stories of a historical moment in the 21st century.
Over 400 individuals have contributed a printed, stitched or drawn textile square for inclusion, resulting in a large installation of five quilted textile panels that will be on display at The Harley Gallery post lockdown.
