The quilt is based on a map of Vilakazi Street, Orlando West, Soweto - a central location in the Soweto Uprisings of 16th June 1976 which were a pivotal event in the fight against apartheid. The quilt is made of a wholecloth base of scraped and stamped screenprinting inks embellished with Pitt Artists Pen and silk string. For those who wish to know more about the writing on the quilt ( which I am very pleased with as from a distance it appears as topographical texture but closer up tells the story of he street) see the entry on my personal blogwhere I set out exactly what is written on the quilt top. More on the blog.
