De Musei Fabrica






De musei fabrica

Cloth and Stitch inspired by the Maude Abbott Museum at McGill University in Montreal.

By happenstance Heather Dubreuil talked to Dr Rick Fraser who is in charge of the museum and somehow came away with the idea that our group - Text’Art - would do an exhibit based on artifacts in the museum.  It didn’t take long for us all to say “yes” when she presented the idea.  It was quite exciting, and a bit daunting but by the time all the pieces were hung we were all delighted with our output. 

It was hung in an ante room to the William Osler Medical Library and the cabinets that are there were filled with items to complement our pieces.  A vertebra , some 100 year old hearts in their glass jars, surgical instruments, books from the library…..  It was very special. 

Here are a few pictures that Heather took.  I would like to send you the booklet, but will have to do it by email as it is a PDF file and it won't work here.

  2. It's always good to hear about members of the group having successes in other spheres. It looks really good and what a wonderful opportunity. Congrats to all involved for a collection of thought provoking textiles.
