What's It Like To Farm Fabric And Allow Textiles To Tell A Story?

Adele Stafford
Maker and Artist
'The finest growth that farmland can produce is a careful farmer."

Standing in a field of naturally coloured cotton under a midday blazing sun, Adele Stafford was introduced to both a magical crop and the harrowing story of the farmer who’d spent thirty years fighting to cultivate and grow it, going up against an increasingly powerful industrial agriculture community, shifting political policy and the final collapse of our domestic textile economy.

This meeting became the focus of her work as a handweaver and a platform for her project, Voices of Industry.
