This year I had the privilege of curating an exhibition at the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Museum.
Meet the Making looks at the details of clothing items from the Museum’s collection, and the people and social history behind the clothing trends. It’s on until 26 June, and you should definitely go see it if you’re in Wellington.
Plus, there are special events to go with it!
Come along on Sunday the 12th of June, from 3-4:30, for a stitching circle.
I’ll show how some of the techniques in the exhibition were done, and bring along one of my own historical sewing projects to show off. Bring along your own sewing (or not – handwork is not required!) and learn a bit as you meet other Wellington makers.
And for those of you who can’t make it, I gave a talk to go with the exhibition, and it’s now available online.
I don’t sound too bad in it either, for someone who had just got over a rather nasty bout of covid…
