Tools

On Monday morning we began thinking about the idea of tools and how to visually map those that interest us most. We have been thinking about what we use as tools, what tools we have, and what tools we have used in the past.  Starting from the very ordinary, those things which we use in our daily lives; such as scissors, needles, pins, typical “textile” tools, and cutlery. Also household tools such as, cork screws, can openers, irons, chargers; and then the more traditional construction tools, such as screw drivers, drills, nails, screws.

We discussed tools specifically for repair, which we could see and discover more about at the Department of Repair Exhibition, at The Camberwell Space, curated by Bridget.
