This ongoing virtual exhibition collects art, writing and poetry reflecting on mental wellbeing in the COVID-19 pandemic- and is available to view via this link.

Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule. In these unprecedented and worrying times, our mental well being and creativity is paramount. Whilst we are confined with limited social interaction, we want to offer online space to explore our responses to the pandemic and social isolation. It’s OK to not be OK and anyone who has any reflections about this is welcome to send them for inclusion on our website. Dwell Time is an award winning, not-for-profit arts publication reflecting on mental well being.
Produced and curated by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley & Lenny Szrama in collaboration with Penistone Line Partnership. Founded in 2018.
“A Letter in Mind has gone from strength to strength and this year they are supported by a number of internationally-renowned creatives including Zandra Rhodes, Chantal Joffe, Mark Dion, Morag and Ishbel Myerscough, Billy Mundy, Tim Hopgood, Polly Dunbar and Chris Riddell, to name just a few.”
All artworks are one off art pieces and all priced at £85.
I hope this finds you all well and in good spirits.
As you may already know, in light of the recent global
events, all textile events and exhibitions in the UK have been postponed at
least until the Autumn. As these were the main way I met and chatted to
the artists which I include in my videos this means I will be making
some changes to my uploads for the next few months.
Fortunately, I have a selection of videos waiting for
editing for my ‘Meet The Artist’ series which I will upload once they are
ready. I am working on ways to capture virtual interviews with some
artists which I hope to bring to you as the year progresses.
I have plans for a number of free tutorials and projects to
help us stay creative and maybe learn a new skill or two. I am also
excited to be in the final stages of a number of kits based on my own
designs which I will be releasing on my newly designed website very soon.
