What can I create for the project? A reminder ...

This project is about Whatever floats your boat ... In other words, whatever takes your own individual fancy and takes you off on a journey of thought and creation. Which hopefully will be wildly different from the next person, and the next person, and the next ...

The work must be inspired by Slough, its environment, history, surroundings, people, and/or the artefacts in the collection of Slough Museum.

• You may use any contemporary textile technique, you do not need to use quilting or produce work that fits any definition of a quilt. For example you may use felt, embroidery, quilting or any other textile technique or combination of techniques you choose. You may include non-textile or mixed media elements.

• Artwork may be 3-d.

• Artwork may be any shape or orientation you choose.

• You may work large or small, or create a series of small pieces which form one artwork.

• You may like to create a piece which is to be displayed next to the object which inspired it in some way. However, before you do this, you must discuss your idea and your materials with the Curator of the Museum.
