'Off Loom' Chair Weaving Project

Our exhibition Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles (January 2020 – April 2020) focused on seven pioneering women who saw beyond the purely functional, to reveal the extraordinary artistic, social and cultural importance of textiles.  Alongside this exhibition, Two Temple Place collaborated with the wonderful ‘A’ Team Arts to create the ‘ Off Loom ' Chair Weaving Project. The project engaged 14 young participants aged 11-19 from Tower Hamlets who reimagined our cafĂ© chairs, using different weaving techniques to give each chair its own identity, narrative and story.  Each chair involved a group approach with careful planning and preparation that reflected the diversity of young people taking part, and their story.  Working on a live project was a great motivation for the 14 young participants, all from different schools, cultural back grounds and genders, culminating in this wonderful opportunity to show their work in a professional environment that is Two Temple Place!  T
