Second Sitters supported by The Cass presents an upholstery installation workshop at Tent London offering a sensory discovery of the skills, techniques and materials of the upholsterer.
Evolving over the duration of Tent a single live collaborative piece will be upholstered by a different second sitter every day. Each bringing their own contemporary take on the traditional craft.
Second Sitters which was established by Cass alumni and staff members Jude Dennis and Hannah Stanton works with some of the best known Upholsters in the UK, many of whom studied at the Faculties famous workshops.
Also launching by Second Sitters at Tent is '20 centimes'. We share our lives with pieces of furniture. Chairs become our places of comfort and refuge, over time collecting our detritus and our most treasured possessions. ‘20 Centimes’ is a travelling piece expanding over time, collecting our memories, bulging with our secrets. Contribute and be part of the story. Write a secret on a scrap of calico and ‘post’ inside the chair. #20Centimes
Second Sitters can be found in Hall T1 Stand F02.
