There are just a few days left to see ‘Things we do in Bed’ an exhibition of quilts at Danson House in Bexleyheath. It’s actually far more exciting than it sounds and don’t worry there are no human re-enactments to worry about. Curated by historical novelist Tracy Chevalier, these quilts, and their accompanying texts, reveal the hopes, dreams, thoughts and inner turmoil of the people who have made them, in both modern and bygone times, and it makes you think about textiles in a whole new way.
It’s an exhibition I’ve wanted to see for ages, so I was absolutely delighted to discover this coverage of it on the fantastic ‘Art-e-facts’ blog written by Katherine Alston. Katherine shares my love of object related stories and I’m extremely grateful to her for allowing me to share her visit to the exhibition with you…..
