The Evolution of a Curve- A talk by Jenny Haynes of Papper, Sax, Sten
Jenny gives shape to curvy quilts and this is a fittingly meandering journey about Jenny’s development as a maker. Her life started in a 70s Sweden with rag rugs and hand-painted bark baskets, via London and a fashion industry that demands that you step on the orange, to a Yorkshire full of Drunkard’s Path quilts with holes and dowels.
It is also a story about the evolution of the curve and how this simple shape is picked up, experimented with and then either discarded (natural selection) or survives to become a building block for something (if Jenny has her way) more elaborate perhaps.
Jenny would say the curve evolves independently and is taking her on a journey rather than the other way around.
After this talk, you can judge for yourselves.
