Festival: 2022

ARt ChaiRs: Sarah Skinner
I’m an artist and creative upholsterer inspired by the materials and skills of traditional upholstery. My work is often functional, but sometimes not, I’m after that second look – chairs are just part of the furniture – aren’t they …?
I’m fascinated by the human relationship to chairs: the physical matching of arm to arm, back to back. We all have hidden strengths, hidden sparks but like the utilitarian upholstery materials I use, they are often hidden away.
The contexts of the Wirksworth Festival feel perfect to explore my work as art and for the home.
