Nature of Mending
The Journey, Exploring the Nature of Mending
The Journey: Exploring the Nature of Mending was a new contemporary craft project that explored the layers of meaning... cultural and emotional ...that are evoked by mending, repair and re-use. Highlighting and celebrating the mending to be found in museum collections was also an important part of the project. www.natureofmending.co.uk/
project was initiated by textile artist Jacy Wall, in partnership
with Walford Mill Crafts, and The Priest’s House Museum in Wimborne,
Dorset. It is supported by Arts Council England and Dorset County Council.
Whilst working through contemporary craft and museum collections, the long term ambition of the project was to contribute to a growing critical debate around the subject of mending, (which of course includes issues of sustainability) and to network through this website with other projects and initiatives nationally and internationally that are working with this subject.
