Stitching Revolutions: Shane Waltener with Craftspace and Husqvarna Viking at the Stitching and Knitting Show 2010

Encounter craft as a performance. Shane Waltener worked live with participants on six Husqvarna Viking overlocking machines in the Palm Court Foyer at Alexandra Palace.

Reworking fabric from old clothes, a group of stitchers acted as one to create Stitching Circle #1. They simultaneously passed and received their continuous creation negotiating the pace of the stitching to keep the work flowing. The stitched installation evolved forming a growing suspended circular display over the course of the four days of the show.

Craftspace and Husqvarna Viking present this exciting event.
The event links to the touring exhibition Taking Time: Craft and the Slow Revolution.
