Secrets & Codes
The work of a wonderful bunch of 10 year olds and how they secretly mapped the history of their rural village in these coded textile works...

The embroidered lines represent an architectural feature of a close by Victorian school attached to the local church.

The buttons, stars and yoyos show points on the map of the village where something significant took place historically, or to the children and their families.

Though the works look abstract, for the children, teacher, myself and the families involved, they are rich with life, memories and history.
