Our sponsor “Madeira Garne” invited us to present the exhibition “Message” at h+h Cologne – »International Trade Fair for Creative Handicraft + Hobby Supplies«.
The competition “Message” invited all participants to integrate an Afghan embroidery featuring words or letters into a textile art work. Each of the 41 results, measuring A4 or A3, is therefore created by 4 hands. The work had to express a message; it could be either a legible text or a rather abstract composition. The embroidery had to stay visible. The message could be directed towards oneself, towards a known, beloved or unknown person or in general towards mankind.
You can find us at h+h cologne in Hall 2.1, B-031a.
Next to the exhibition, Afghan embroidery will be offered for sale. We are excited to see you there!
