546 Makers, 270 metres long, 500 fabrics, 27000 individual hand stitches.
A new exhibition is opening at Wellington Museum on Friday 2-31 August 2019. The work, called Suffrage in Stitches, matches the length of the original petition and consists of 546 individually designed fabric panels (number of pages in the original petition) telling the stories of those who signed the petition or relatives who’ve influenced the 546 makers.
The work includes the names of 546 women and over 27,000 hand-stitched marks, one for each signature on the petition, along with multiple surface decoration techniques.
