B. KNITTING AND STITCHING SHOWS 2017

A collaborative project which reflects the heritage, the significance and the importance of bark cloth, from the Buganda Kingdom of Southern Uganda. The exhibition will explore the importance that bark cloth has to each of the two artists, Jose Hendo and Bobby Briynell and how they use the bark cloth in their own creative works. Bark cloth has been manufactured in Uganda for centuries and is Uganda’s sole representative on the UNESCO intangible Cultural Heritage Lists, ensuring its protection for the future. Despite its decline over the years the kingdom of Buganda is at last seeing a revival of this ancient craft. This exhibition will reflect these many different facets in a show where these two artists share a passion for the environment and wider global challenges. Each of the artists wishes to share their knowledge and make a positive contribution to revival of bark cloth.
