Patchwork Workshops & the Quarantine Quilt Exhibition

Patchwork takes different fabrics and connects them, creating something beautiful and useful. #PatchworkDevon is a new project about carrying our priorities forward – together.

The Quarantine Quilt Project Exhibition is from 13 February- 3 March 2023 in the Beehive gallery.

In a moment where our sense of our world seemed to be falling to pieces, the Quarantine Quilt Project run by Significant Seams helped people pick up the fragments and see their priorities. In tandem, people individually recorded what they cared about. Individuals then entrusted these thoughts back to Significant Seams artists. With threads, empathy, and artistry, they connected these insights into the artworks ‘The Quarantine Quilts.’ Come and see the quilts displayed in the gallery at The Beehive between 13 February and 3 March 2023. Free entry.
