Boundary Women’s Project finish new wall hanging

October 3, 2011

I’m sure lots of people remember the beautiful wall hanging “Bagaan” embroidered by the Boundary Women’s Project at St Hilda’s Community Centre.  It was so brilliant that it was exhibited in the Museum of London last year.  It featured Arnold Circus and its flora and fauna (here’s a pic for anyone who wasn’t lucky enough to see it):

After seeing Bagaan, Lloyds register commissioned the group (and their teacher, textile designer Mary Spyrou) to make a wall hanging for them, which, after many months of hard work, they’ve finished.

Here’s the group hard at work:

And here’s the finished product:

Brilliant work!  Its going to be exhibited as part of the ‘East Hand’ exhibition from 7-30 October at Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery in Hackney Wick (smokehousegallery.org).  Do go and see it if you get a chance, it really is a masterpiece, and the culmination of many many hours of embroidering!
