Urban fabrics

Yesterday I went to The Papered Parlour in Clapham for the Come Across Stitch event, part of London Design Week. Artist Hannah Hull discussed the way she uses the urban environment as her studio, hanging oversized bunting across terraced houses, draping doilies over skips and wrapping architectural structures with fluorescent yarn. I found some of the pieces using the map, but unfortunately didn't have time to see the skip piece (image from The Papered Parlour).

While searching for the bunting, I came across three different beds that had been thrown out into front gardens, and thought they represented a similar theme to Hulls work - with the pretty interior fabrics contrasting against the textured greys of bricks and concrete.
