Clare Hunter

A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle

LITERARY LUNCH - includes two-course lunch with coffee or tea

We have, says Clare Hunter, always sewed our story. From the political propaganda of the Bayeux Tapestry to First World War soldiers with PTSD, to maps sewn by schoolgirls in the New World, from medieval France to contemporary Mexico and from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland. Each stitch is a story of identity, protest, memory, power and politics. Clare joins us to tell stories of men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard.
