A Gathering Thread is a temporary art installation, residency, and performance in the heart of Paisley High Street.
A vacant shop unit, unoccupied for over 3 years, has been re-painted and transformed into a textiles workshop. Over the course of June and July 2021, Alis Le May will be in residence in the window of the shop, slowly creating a hand-sewn garment, utilising vintage Coats thread spun in Paisley.
A garment will gradually form on the mannequin, and regular visitors to the High Street will be able to watch the progress of the piece from week to week.
The garment will also incorporate real pressed flowers, gathered from the local environment.
