From the latest fashions to the lines of a building, stripes have a place in our everyday lives. This month sees the celebration of all things stripey come to London, courtesy of the pattern loving duo that make up Patternity. Anna Murray, Art Director and Grace Winteringham, Surface Textiles Designer created Patternity – an award winning creative organisation – to push forward the awareness and understanding of pattern.
The team have kicked off their first annual festival of pattern with a bang. Pattern Power – Superstripe immerses visitors into a world of stripes, encouraging them to think about how they interact with patterns in the real world. The exhibition, containing lashings of must have monochrome has been put together with creative minds from the worlds of fashion, science, technology, art, the environment and beyond.
As well as taking in the exhibition, you can jump feet first into the world of stripes by attending one of Patternity’s workshops which have been running daily since the exhibition began. There’s still time to get involved in a spot of stripy textile painting with fine art graduate, David David or join Fred Butler in making some rainbow accessories. Visit the Pattern Power Eventbrite page to book tickets.

Patternity Pattern Power – Superstripe is at Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch Street, London E2 7DP until 21st April. Free entry to the main exhibition
