The Home project exhibition opens this weekend at The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury, and runs until 13th October. The artwork was created by Anna Ray and a group of mothers living in Ashford - long term residents and recently resettled Syrian women. Over the course of seven months, Anna worked with the group to explore the theme of ‘home’. The aim of the commission was to bring a new community together, to discover commonalities and celebrate differences.
Through weekly workshops, the participants worked with drawing, painting, print, felt-making, weaving and stitch. As they made artwork together, the women shared stories of their home-lives, speaking of the joys of motherhood and the challenges they face. Since the project drew to a close last year the group have continued to make artwork together as friends, drawing on the skills and confidence gained from this unique project.
