Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution
Softcover book of Second Sitters radical touring exhibition
Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution.
Evolution: The book maps the changes and developments within the craft in the UK since it was formalised as a ‘trade’ almost 700 years ago documenting techniques, materials and stories within a social, industrial and political context. Features interviews from current UK upholsterers.
Revolution: Features contemporary works from UK based upholsterers, showcased as part of Upholstery: Evolution to Revolution, from furniture and photography to film, tackling activism, social commentary, sustainability, materiality and throwaway culture, challenging the traditional, preconceived role of the upholsterer.
Second Sitters aim is to make everything we do as accessible as possible, sharing the knowledge and love for upholstery, as such we are taking pre-orders for the book. This allows us to bulk order and share the costs among everyone & that means you!!
