Hope: Weaving Communities Together

Sat 18th Sep 2021 to Sat 30th Oct 2021 - All Day


Artist Elaine Foster-Gandey has worked closely with local communities to create ‘Hope’, a giant sculptural dress woven with words of hope as we step back out into the world.

‘HOPE’ was an idea by artist Elaine Foster-Gandey, born out of the need to reconnect after such a difficult time with the Covid pandemic. Weaving words of hope from local people into a dress sculpture, allowing voices to be heard who are normally invisible is the ethos behind this work.  Through various workshops people have been given the chance to reconnect and learn skills while contributing to ‘Hope’.
