Traditionally viewed as a domestic task or as women’s work, embroidery is experiencing a boom and a major image overhaul. No longer just a humdrum craft, a new generation of embroiderers are creating art with complex and political dynamics.
Amber Butchart presents In Stitches, a radio documentary looking at these radical embroidery artists and the ability to explore hidden histories, political messages and untold stories through stitching.
In Stitches airs on BBC Radio 4 on November 15th at 11.30am. Listen on BBC Radio 4 or online here.
