Sometimes you have an idea floating in your head that you want to create. It took me months to channel an idea that I had, based on an iconic image from the magazine of the Suffragette movement, The Suffragettes, by Christine Pankhurst.
What made this piece unique from most other pieces I create, is that this was all handmade (excluding the printout image). Letters were hand stitched on, as was the banner whilst the title 'Women' was painted on in fabric paints.
The fabric I used was donated to me, and was part of a set of fabric that was to be used for dressmaking, hence the shaping at the top of the piece.
Spontaneous make last week before taking it up to Birmingham this week. Feedback very welcome!!
