The Unpicked:Restitched body of artwork is currently on tour. Find out here where you can see the work exhibited.
Where is the heart of a town to be found?
Is it in its history, a point on the map or in the people; their memories and experience? Or is it in the power of places to inspire us, to enable us to imagine something else beneath its surface, between its layers and beyond its skyline?
Conceived by Arc, the project UNPICKED : RESTITCHED set out to explore this.
Through the support of Arts Council England and Stockport MBC, Arc commissioned writer Sarah Butler and textile artist Julie Mosley to lead a programme of public workshops, conversation and engagement. Together they discovered hidden stories, characters, maps within maps, producing a major exhibition in venues across Stockport.
