Craftivist – Papered Parlour Event: 19 Sept 2009 COME ACROSS STITCH – Hannah Hull

SKIPNETSince one of my walls at home is adorned by work of this particular (and fab) artist, and that the venue – The Papered Parlour is very very cool, I of course think this is of interest and am happy to endorse:


Hannah Hull Saturday 19 Sept 2009, 11am – dusk

The Papered Parlour is delighted to present Come Across Stitch, a one day event that brings together three key works by public artist Hannah Hull. From oversized bunting to gynormous doilies, The Papered Parlour takes you on a craft hunt of extreme proportions as part of the London Design Festival 2009. Renowned for her mischievous interventions in the built environment, Hull will transform the back streets of Clapham into a playground of public art. Working with a DIY aesthetic, and drawing on domestic craft traditions, Hull places handmade items in unexpected urban contexts. Utilising a mix of highly visible and concealed interventions that add colour and texture to the urban environment, Hull’s series of ‘improvements’ takes a humorous look at the ways in which public art can unite strangers and bring communities together. From giant bunting stretched the length of a row of terrace housing to a huge doily big enough to cover a builder’s skip, expect craftivism on a massive scale!

This one day event includes:

11am: Come Across Stitch – 3 key public art interventions by Hannah Hull.

12pm: Artist Talk – Public artist Hannah Hull in conversation 1pm: Market: Shop at The Papered Parlour’s bustling indoor designer-maker market.

2pm: Workshop – Join Hannah Hull to help create a mass intervention in the backstreets of Clapham.

All Day: Design Trail – Follow The Papered Parlour’s map and uncover a world of design in South London you never knew existed.

Dusk: Closing Party – Join Hannah Hull for drinks at dusk as the giant luminous bunting takes on a life of it’s own. For more information join The Papered Parlour’s mailing list and await further instruction…
