Our Collection

The Hometown

Top of page

A collection of tapestries designed and sewn by the filmmaker illustrates the lyrics of a song about a young girl's hometown. Animation is created through a combination of sewing and cinematic techniques. The needlework, done in a naïve style, is particularly well suited to the bright colours and varied textures of the work. This lively film is designed to promote interest in the art of tapestry.
