The School’s first celebration of International Women’s Day is about to culminate in an evening of experimental performance, art, comedy, music, workshops, knitting and food. I realised we’re working with over 40 women to put on this event. All profit’s will go to Refuge – which I’m really glad about – still a very relevant charity and so good to know that they’re there when we may be feeling our most vulnerable.
I’ve been getting pretty excited about crocheting around wire:
It’s now situated on the big fence outside The School – I cant wait to get some shots of it tomorrow.
Part of the event has involved Rye Gorilla Knitters yarn bombing Rye. A mammoth task that has been tackled with gusto by some very lovely people.
One of the best things about working on a big project is the opportunity to collaborate with other organisations. As part of the event I am co-curating an exhibition with Xaverine Bates founder of Riart Grrrls and Sarah Money from Rye Art Gallery.
