Details: Samples is a collection of stories about fabric, collected from people in Hackney and Newham, told through sound, text and images. Samples was devised by Jessica Plant as part of an MA Arts and Design by Independent Project at the University of Brighton in 2012.

More information: Samples aims to explore the textile objects we hold onto and reveal the stories and meaning they carry. Jessica put together a book, along with a sound montage and a series of images, which aims to bring these stories and communities together. Featured stories were collected from members of the community at workshops, which took place at local venues including; Hackney Museum, Rosetta Arts and The View Tube. Jessica has also made a series of designs inspired by the Samples project; these limited edition prints, postcards and textile images will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition
The exhibition continues until Sunday 3rd November 2013.
