Wyldwood Arts Project

Wyldwood Arts invited us to make fabric pictures to be included in a large banner for a theatre production called ‘May’.  Rosa May Billingshurst was a Suffragette, campaigning, marching and lobbying parliament for equal rights for women and especially the Vote. She was also disabled, from a young age, unable to use her legs after contracting Polio as a child. Our banner pictures are part of a large artwork being made with Jeanette Mcculloch for the theatre play called ‘May’ that is travelling to theatres including The Courtyard 8th November. 60 parts of the banner have already been made by other people, including reside3st The Forbury. ‘Never Judge a Book by its Cover’ is our theme.

The photos show the sewn fabric collages and Ruby, Audrey and Margaret stitching and arranging their fabrics.. (click on photos to enlarge)..
