Stitch and Chat is an embroidery table where we, CollectiveConstructs, invite people who pass by to sit with us and join the collective embroidery piece. By doing embroidery together, something that almost everyone can learn and do, we open up a space to talk open and freely. When you are doing something with your hands, not having to look each other in the eye, it is much easier to talk. You can not say anything and focus on your embroidery, just listen, take part in the conversation or share your deepest secrets.
We did in different places the Stitch and Chat: in Wasserette de Printer, at SUPERMARKET independent art fair in Stockholm and in Galerie Noord in Groningen.
