30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST


Would you like to be part of a creative project to tell the story of Reading during the Covid-19 period of social isolation and lockdown?

Reading Lockdown Quilt is an online patchwork of images, videos, poems, dances, paintings, poems, words, tweets. The quilt is a chronicle of the Covid-19 lockdown in Reading. It's a powerful record of isolation in Reading which will speak powerfully to future generations. 

The quilt will eventually form a real life tapestry. So, we welcome fabric patches and technical help from sewers, knitters, weavers, textile artists. If you would like to be part of the project but are not sure what to do next, contact Larry at quilt@risingsun-artscentre.co.uk or phone 07765 599 433.
