Artist call out

Patched up is an exhibition encouraging the fusion of painting, textile, installation to create your 'patch' or jacket insignia.

We advise you to stitch/paint/applique (or a mixture of all) onto a firm textile substrate such as a piece of firm canvas or denim.

We encourage you to think out of the box and imagine your 'patch' stitched or fastened to the back of a denim jacket, leather jacket, or even your Grandad's dressing gown!


You may use safety pins, wire, lace, leather, strapping, harakeke, foliage, etc.

This can be a collab project !
