An exhibition of wall quilts and textile work by Norma Slabbert
9 September – 10 October 2016

While we stitch life is not elsewhere. In world that is increasingly connected with nonstop news, quilt making does not happen in solitary isolation. Our quilts often absorb the everyday and the world, as it exists outside our daily experience.

While quilt making is often seen as a therapeutic pastime, for some, it is a way of life and a way to contemplate, question, and communicate some truths about daily life, human nature, and unfolding tragedies.

With its nostalgic association of home and safety, a quilt is an ideal form to accommodate the mess. On the bed it can be a warm and cuddly thing of beauty, but on the wall, it could make the reality of existence all the harder to bear.

If you cannot make it to the exhibition, Norma will post some photographs of the quilts on Pinterest – after the opening night. Visit:

    I visited Norma’s exhibition this morning, and was absolutely blown away by the beauty of this latest body of her work. Every piece is stunning, and as always her workmanship is impeccable. It was also very thought provoking, and very profound. I then had the opportunity of having coffee with Norma this afternoon, and discussing her quilts with her, having followed the progress of some during their making.

    If you have a chance to visit this exhibition, please do go.
