Creative Peninsula 2019 - Fabrications: Unravelling fact from folklore by Susan Robinson

Aran.jpg

Fabrications examines the fine line between facts, fiction and folklore. Combining Screen- printing, Stitch, Knitting and Crochet, Robinson examines, embroiders and embellishes our understanding of memory and the human brain.

As we’re celebrating Creative Peninsula and Craft Month this is a highly participative exhibition and we hope you will get creative in the interactive exhibits:

Learn how to Spin your own ‘brainy’ yarn: Have a go at spinning, knitting and crocheting while you visit the exhibition. Add your own ‘twists to the tale’ or put your on ‘hook’ on what the last person has done. Over the course of the exhibition will add these collaboratively-made ‘fabrications' to the show.

BIG BRAIN In Stitches: Spend five minutes or half an hour making your mark in stitch on our BIG BRAIN, a collaborative work that will grow over the course of the exhibition. Bring some fabric, buttons or threads or choose from our stash.
