Sweet Air


This body of armour that
is the weight and size
of my heart
is the shield and protection
to my soul and eyes
when touched I breathe sweet air

Gavins poem



Armour is a six month project with homeless people focussing on veterans of armed service, developing creative ideas based on medieval armour. How can veterans live peacefully with the memory of war? How do we protect ourselves and the ones we love? We are re-thinking, re-examine, re-create quilted medieval armour, as garments embroidered with meditations on war and peace.
