'Holding inside her the secret pattern for the carpet, she would weave each thread gently in and gently out, through hard wired vertical, thick weft thread, stopping from time to time to align them .

Welcome to episode 1 of series 4 - The Series of Things.
This new series is called: The Stories of Things and it aims to feature  stories of  those things that are meaningful in our lives – those things that we have kept, that we have carried with us from house to house, the things that we do not remove easily from our possession.

We would love for this series to be collaborative, and we invite you to bring your stories to the fold!
Please share the stories of those things that are not just things on the website or in an Instagram message.
