    Same sea, Different boat-

    Our Isolation Story

    the yard:ARTspace, Hope & Elvis and Littleheath Barn Studio

    Are proud to present a collaborative project which celebrates out creativity in a time of unexpected crisis

    It has been hard to find our creativity during lock down; we are all in the same sea but not necessarily the same boat!

    We have all experienced the Covid pandemic in very different ways and Louise, Liske and Sue want to invite you to take part in an exciting combined project. The plan is to create a printed/stitched fabric quilt that explores your individual experiences, thoughts & emotions

    collectively about your time in lock down.

    Become part of a bigger picture.

    All of your work will be made into an amazing quilt, which will showcase beautifully your individual response to the global pandemic.

    The final piece will be displayed in various locations (dates and locations TBA)

    The Project

    •​Make a simple collagraph plate, 10cms x 10cms, using the instructions at These instructions have been put together especially for those who have never made a collagraph plate before. Express your lock down experience, figuratively or as an abstract.

    •​Put your name, address and email on the back of the completed collagraph plate and together with a SAE post it to:-

    Sue Brown.

    the yard:ARTspace,

    Upper Bath Street,

    Cheltenham, GL50 2AU

    Your collagraph plate must be with Sue by 12 June.

    •​It will be inked up and printed on fabric for you in Prussian blue.

    •​Sent back to you for stitching and embellishing.

    •​Return finished square to Sue at the yard:ARTspace by 3 July, where Louise, Liske and Sue will join everything together.


    •​Create a stitched, collage using only natural fabrics, embroider hand or machine as much as you like, expressing your lock down experience, figuratively or as an abstract.

    • Please make the image size 10cm x 10cm on a piece of fabric 15cm x 15cm so it will fit the other squares to make the quilt.

    •​Send your completed square to Sue at the yard:ARTspace, address above, by 3 July where Louise, Liske and Sue will join everything together.

    If you would like to take part could you please e-mail as soon as possible so we know how many collagraph plates and stitched squares to expect

    Although this project is not in any way about profit, to help towards printing cost etc we have set up a just giving page to enable (if you wish) to make a small donation i.e £3 this is by no means compulsory
