THREADS OF LIFE A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle

by | Read by Siobhan Redmond

History • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Siobhan Redmond narrates Clare Hunter's thoughts on how her experience as a community textile artist fits into the history of textile artistry. Redmond uses an even pace and tone for academic details, such as the origin of a medieval tapestry, and speeds up and adds vocal variety when describing Hunter's excitement at seeing such notable works up close. A variety of stories spanning centuries and continents highlights sewing as a form of communication, protest, protection, and even navigation. Redmond changes her voice to emphasize the moving nature of these stories. For example, she delivers a chant from the women's suffrage movement in a singsong intonation and lowers her volume to express empathy for the tragic stories told by many textiles.
