On 15 October 2022, the artists and curators of 'FABRICATION : A Message Folded, Moulded and Stitched' hosted a Finissage event, inviting visitors to take part in an contemplative and interactive session of stitching on fabric while chatting with the artists about their artwork on show.
Small squares of natural fabric, thread and needles were provided abd guests were invited to make their own marks on the fabric. The stitched squares will be assembled after the event to make one collaborative piece and a lucky Fabrication Finissage participant won the collaborative piece; a journal of thoughts around this special exhibition.
