The patchwork blanket is now complete, with 1,138 labels sewn on to represent the number of people who died in the Rana Plaza complex, Bangladesh in April 2013.

The title of the piece #whomademyclothes is from the organisation Fashion Revolution who are calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.


The blanket will be hung at the MA Fine Art end of year show at Brighton University, Grand Parade July 8th – July 15th.

It will also be on show at Fugitive Ink open house throughout May, listings published 11th April. http://aoh.org.uk

Meanwhile, I still continue to work at Draw and will be teaching another 10 week course at the Camden Arts Centre starting this month.

Some recent drawings from the studio:



About Shelley Morrow

Since 2011 I have been predominantly a figurative artist with an interest in conveying expression, movement and gesture. I take the drawings I make and explore them through various processes, particularly embroidery, textiles and etchings. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art in 1990 and currently taking my MA in Fine Art at Brighton University. I also work at Draw in Brighton, running and teaching Life Drawing sessions

    Think your patchwork blanket is great Shelley, very powerful, and your studies from the figure are always tremendous! Two quick queries while I’m here, are you exhibiting in an Open House in May? And secondly, I saw you last year at some Brunswick Square art fair and, if there’s something similar happening again this year, I’d be interested in finding out more if you could keep me in mind!? Thanks Shelley
