Calling all Sewers and Scrubbers!

Did you pick up a needle and thread to lend a hand in 2020? Are you still sewing and donating now? We would like to hear from you!


Would you be interested in taking part in a free staff & community textile project that will reflect on the amazing efforts people made to provide PPE masks, scrubs, scrubs bags and everything else in 2020?

We (Gwent Arts in Health & ABUHB) have raised funding through NHS Charities and NESTA for a creative project that aims to reflect our experiences at that difficult time through a series of community textile murals that will be hung in our hospitals throughout ABUHB.

 

At this stage, we would like anyone who would like to contribute and take part – sharing stories, stitching a piece or two, sharing with others – to get in touch so we can start planning the project together. The project will start in September and will offer sessions in person when safe to do so and remotely. Materials and expertise will be provided within COVID guidelines.

 

If this sounds like you or your group, please get in touch ideally by 13th August, and share this with your friends, family and networks.
