Overview

The culmination of a two-year creative collaboration between the National Army Museum (NAM), contemporary artist Susan Stockwell and soldiers in rehabilitation, 'Piece Makers' is touring regimental museums across the UK throughout 2014 and 2015.

Using discarded Army blankets to create a dark and light patchwork quilt – resonant of the fragmentary and ultimately peaceful recovery experience – the textile is reminiscent of a chessboard. It refers in this sense to the ‘game’ of war, as well as carrying traditional connotations of patchwork as a shared making process and intertwining of personal histories.
