Stitching Together – An Exhibition is created by Bridges for Communities and Arnolfini to celebrate and share our unique partnership that has developed over the last three years, drawing out the special moments and projects that have helped the partnership to grow.
In Gallery 5, there will be a particular focus on the beautiful textile creations and stories of women from across Bristol, including the work of Arnolfini’s regular Friday Women’s Craft Club and Bridges for Communities’ Stitching Together group.
In partnership with Bristol Refugee Festival and Bridges for Communities, Arnolfini’s Craft Club, is a weekly ‘craft and conversation’ group where women from all backgrounds are welcome to come along, have a cup of tea, share skills and get crafty.
The Stitching Together group provides a welcoming space for refugee and asylum-seeking women in Bristol to be creative and make beautiful and useful textile based art, clothes, and homewares, while gaining confidence and making friends.
Bridges for Communities is a Bristol-based charity which seeks to create communities that are kinder, fairer and more welcoming and which helps people of different cultures, races and faiths live well together.
This free exhibition is held across Arnolfini’s second floor.
