Duty of Care, 2021.

Vintage linen apron, appliqué, hand stitch and print.


A 'duty of care' implies a legal or moral obligation to keep people safe, but is often paid only 'lip service' without genuine compassion for individuals. The old indigo work apron has been patched and darned as a metaphor for self-care, constantly trying to repair the damage of a neglectful workplace culture, in order to keep ourselves strong.


Exhibited in 'Home/Work' at the Knitting & Stitching Show 2021.
