In Autumn 2019, TOAST partnered with Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge to produce an exhibition – TOAST Re-New - that explored the idea that clothes can have a life beyond their first wearer.

TOAST invited five artists to re-new old TOAST garments and waste materials – from indigo-dyed cloth to hand-woven ikats – and repurpose them into something unique and unexpected.
The five textile artists - Alice Fox, Abigail Booth, Hannah Robson, Richard McVetis and Sophie Rowley - created innovative pieces that were exhibited at Kettle’s Yard. The work ranged from pieced quilts and latch-hooked rugs, to constructed, woven sculptures suspended from the ceiling. The exhibition sat in line with Jim Ede’s ethos towards supporting artists, and followed his belief in art’s power to make us look again and change how we act in the world.
