Crossing Time and Tide: The Creek

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, Laban Building, Creekside, SE8 3DZ


Pieces of shibori indigo died cloth are stitched together with spaces between, carrying the images of ocean and waves. The installation is hung high in front of a window with the light coming through. The work can be read as evoking the sails of a ship. The materials include velvet, linen, cotton and silk, incorporating some rope. The making uses the mending skills of stitching, dyeing, sampling and design. The piece has movement, like water, its subject and evokes Deptford’s seafaring past and the spirit of the tidal Creek that feeds the Thames and ultimately the world’s oceans.

While you're there you can share your thoughts by leaving your own message in a bottle provided at the installation.
