The Street Loves Nana

From Standing Room Only, 2:26 pm on 16 February 2014

Auckland's Splore Festival 2014 is witnessing the re-emergence of one of our most interesting textile artists. When a fire damaged her home last year, Margaret Lewis lost not just a lot of her work and most of her enormous collection of materials, but she very nearly lost her drive to create too. A year later, mojo fully restored, she's back, mashing up street art with cross-stitch in a community art project called The Street Loves Nana. Justin Gregory met her at her storage space in Auckland.
