Touring exhibition curated by Liz Cooper, launched at the Pumphouse Gallery, London in 2015, and has since been seen at the Crafts Study Centre, Farnham and the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Bovey Tracey, with new works continuing to be added as the tour unfolds.

Featuring specially commissioned pieces, the exhibition principally explores damage and repair through the processes and gestures of textile mending. Using stitch and other media in a range of scales and materials, the artists examine themes of disease and medicine, healing and restoration as applied to landscapes, bodies, minds and objects.
