On Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd Jemma Bagley (Charnwood Arts, Community Arts and Wellbeing Coordinator) and I were at the Peepul Enterprise putting up Loughborough University 1st year textile students work.
We did a lot of prep in the weeks running up to the big hang, organising, planning, sourcing materials, cutting down and washing ladders and lots and lots of framing. The time spent in preparation really paid off.
Here’s a little taster of the foyer area
Not to mention the ladder installation.
It has been a long, stressful and arduous few days but I think the results were well worth our efforts.
The exhibition is now up and ready for viewing at Peepul Enterprise, Orchardson Ave, Leicester LE4 6DP.
A huge thank you to Jemma B for keeping me going. Also to all the students who produced the lovely work, to Maddy for creating and publishing the blog, to Kerry Walton and Kerry Akiwowo for their help and support setting the brief and for guiding students through the project. Also thanks to Natalie at Charnwood Arts for making the lovely information boards, and to Peepul Enterprises for hosting and not complaining about all the hammering and drilling we caused yesterday.
