ON THE ROAD TO GLASGOW AND THE COP 26
Coat of Hopes is a travelling, community created, work of performance craft. A patchwork garment made of embroidered pieces of blanket, created by a diverse range of people along a 500 mile walk.
The coat will be made up of around 300 patches, created by groups or individuals along its journey route and beyond. People’s griefs and remembrances connected to their local landscapes and stories of migration, along with their prayers and hopes for the future, will be stitched, appliqued, felted and painted onto pieces of blanket which will be added to the coat as it travels to the Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
