The makers and facilitators of these works, explore many ways to grow and learn, but there's a far more cosmic outcome, which can not be measured, and which requests the participation of you, the viewer.
You are invited to witness stitch making as evidence of living. These stitches are made by hands that are powered by peace. There is a raw rhythm of consistant determination. The concentration demonstrated on these fabrics are proof that trusting our purpose is true, without fear of time, brings reward in unexpected ways.
Repetition within craft and evidence of time spent in work, appeals tous all. Giving of our time, and finding space in our busy lives to concentrate is increasingly difficult. This show gives us space to question just how simple and powerful a creative action can be.
NB: East London Textile Arts (ELTA) has been working with adults with learning disabilities for over four years, mostly at day centres run by the London borough of Newham. This is part of a larger and long-term arts project working with marginalised groups in East London. ELTA believes in the long term development of creative abilities (we do not run short courses), and we tailor our work to all interests, abilities and cultures so that each individual can develop their unique talents.
