Film of Whomade
The film Whomade was created for the exhibition Narrative Cloth held at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum in September 2015. Exhibited alongside work by Fine Art lecturers from the University of Chichester, Whomade resulted from collaboration with social historian, Danae Tankard. The starting point was Danae’s published article, ‘A pair of grass-green woollen stockings: the clothing of the rural poor in seventeenth-century Sussex’ 1. Danae’s research considers narratives associated with cloth and draws on a diverse range of primary sources including probate lists of testators’ moveable goods taken immediately after death.
