Working with Mick Sheridan, whose work is exhibited in Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution at the National Centre for Craft and Design bring and transform an old dining chair to donate to a local community venue. 

Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution explores the evolution and new revolution within the craft of upholstery, the exhibition features work from UK based upholsterers who are redefining the traditional preconceived role of the upholsterer, combining traditional craft skills with contemporary thinking. 

Taking the form of a physical timeline the exhibition maps the changes and developments within the craft to include techniques, materials and upholsterer’s stories. The works included are multidisciplinary; furniture, photography, film and are used to explore activism, social commentary, materiality and the throwaway culture.
