Artist and curator, Jan Millington has been commissioned to create new work for an exhibition of 12 fabric collages, using repurposed and plant-dyed fabric, each depicting the full moons during the 12 months of the year.

Millington has spent the past year carefully observing each Full Moon of each month, recording the detail of the night’s weather conditions and other environmental factors. Using her records to inform the creation of the textile works, Millington’s stitches provide a snapshot of The Moon’s movements and its relationship those looking towards it from Earth.
