It has been fantastic to see the response to the call out for Peace Squares to be made as part of the Artists for Peace ‘All We Are Saying’ exhibition at the Holy Biscuit in September. I would like to share a few of the squares which have recently arrived.
The squares above were made by members of the North Shields Embroidery Guild and the Tuesday Crafternoon group. They are a fabulous collection, even using found items like shells to decorate the square.
If you would like to make a Peace Square and send it to us – wherever you are in the World – then please send it to:
The Holy Biscuit
1 Clarence Street
Newcastle upon Tyne
The squares can be made in any textile technique – knitting, sewing, proggy matting, fabric painting etc. If the finished design size can be 20 cm square and please allow a few more cm around the square for sewing. The only thing we ask is if the square is not to be overtly religious or political, as we would like this to be a very inclusive work.
The beautiful piece above was sent into us anonymously and it’s a lovely piece on pretty fabric.
I hope to share more of the squares we’ve had delivered again soon.
