This month I began my residency with Bank Street Arts.
The first thing on my to do list is to raise my target of £650 to get the project under way, so I’ve launched a crowd funding appeal with Indigogo to raise the money. This money will be primarily be used for printing costs, postage and materials.
The DNA cross-stitch pattern will be printed and posted out to people who wish to participate in the project. I want to get the project out to cross-stitch groups around the county, many of which may not have any online presence. That will require sending letters and patterns through the post, and will take up the bulk of the money raised.
I also want to raise money for materials. The more materials I can buy, the more workshops I can provide for free, or for at least for a minimal charge. It would be great if this project could teach more people how to cross-stitch and think about cross-stitch in an artistic context, and end with their work a very different kind of exhibition in an art gallery.
Please support the project by sharing the link to my crowd funding appeal, and by contributing. Thank you.
