In collaboration with Thread Bearing Witness, this aspect of the project aims to connect communities and individuals across the UK to show support for displaced people around the world. Participants are invited to stitch a tree which will later be arranged into a large embroidery called Forest by artist Alice Kettle. Forest will be displayed at the Whitworth, Manchester, from September 2018.
Packs containing fabric, thread and a printed booklet were posted out nationally and internationally, or people downloaded PDF guidance.
Each contribution to Forest will be acknowledged and documented on a map.
We thank you for contributing to this project and we look forward to seeing your stitched tree as part of Forest at the Whitworth in Autumn 2018!
