Stay home, Stay Safe
Vintage hand dyed linen and embroidery
“Depicting life in lockdown, vintage linen is hand dyed with gorse and dandelions to represent the yellow messaging of the ‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’ mantra throughout lockdown. A variety of hand embroidery techniques have been used to create a range of ‘house’ shapes, each one unique in its style and content, portraying the idea that externally each house is different, as are the experiences of those who live within them. The repetitive nature of the hand embroidery stitches mirror the repetitive nature of life in lockdown, and each day merging into the next.”
