Sashiko Iris

Ssashikohookingashiko is traditional Japanese embroidery. It is a running stitch done with white thread on indigo fabric. Originally it was done by farmers and fishermen to mend and reinforce clothing, but today it is a delicate surface embellishment on quilts, bags, mats and garments. (Sashiko pillow, below right, by Shirley Davies)
Susan Grant and her sister Shirley Davies became aware of sashiko when Shirley purchased a book by Kitty Pippen called Quilting with Japanese Fabrics. Shirley, a quilter, was interested in the beautiful Japanese fabrics and in learning how to do sashiko. Susan, a rug hooker, was intrigued by the geometric designs used by Kitty. Their collaboration is shown, left.

B.C. Children’s Hospital puts out call to Canadian artists for healing-art project

BC Hospital Children’s Healing Experience Project

A challenge has been put forth for artists across Canada to submit applications for a hospital art project.

The deadline has passed for this competition.

 

The Teck Acute Care Centre, currently under construction at the B.C. Children’s Hospital, is set to be completed by November 2017, and aims to be “the brightest space in North America for sick kids”, according to a news release.

 

The Children’s Healing Experience Project initiative aims to cover 60,000 square feet of the eight-storey building with art that will captivate and comfort children, families, and staff to make the hospital experience less anxious and stressful.
