Facial expressions are the most universal form of body language, with hundreds of subtly different expressions allowing us to convey our feelings and emotions.
We instinctively learn to "read" faces from a young age.
Yet for individuls on the autistic spectrum this can be totally confusing with each expression like a code that needs to be deciphered.
This work has now been completed and delivered ready to be exhibited at the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace next week as part of the second stage of Prism's Coded:Decoded exhibition
These girls, each with their machine embroidered facial expressions, will be travelling to Harrogate and Dublin too.
If you are visiting the shows, be sure to say hello to them!
