Now On Show.

I’ve got two pieces on show as part of the ‘Fabrications’ exhibition at The Mill in Walthamstow, East London.  We were challenged to use fabric in novel or tradition ways.

I’ve gone for two needlework pieces- a past time often seen as very ‘feminine’.  I’ve used it to depict quotes from two very revolutionary women, both of whom were activists who embraced radical, anti-establishment notions.
