Online Talk // Same Sea, Different Boat

At Harley Gallery & Portland Collection


Same Sea, Different Boat tells the epic story, in textiles, print and thread of a worldwide pandemic that put the world into lockdown.

During this 30-minute talk, the artists behind the project, Harley Studio artist Louise Asher (Hope & Elvis), textile artist, Liske Johnson (Littleheath Barn Studio) and artist Sue Brown (theyard:Artspace, Cheltenham) will discuss how they engaged a community of participants to contribute towards a textile installation that reflected personal experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak. Little did they know, it would become an international textile storyboard telling the stories of a historical moment in the 21st century.

Over 400 individuals have contributed a printed, stitched or drawn textile square for inclusion, resulting in a large installation of 5 quilted textile panels that will be on display at The Harley Gallery post lockdown.
