Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Blog from Mary Lewis - DASH Processions

Mary Lewis has keenly participated in a number of the PROCESSIONS workshops, led by artist Anne Marie Lagram and organised by DASH in conjunction with Artichoke.

Inspired by the workshops, she has organised her own sessions with her local craft group at Forge Urban Revival and has shared her experiences in her beautifully illustrated blog post.

Mary says:
'On a personal level I feel very privileged to be involved in this project and to have shared a very positive experience with a group of inspiring women. I have been fascinated for many years in the role of textile arts in protest, particularly feminist protest, and I feel that this project celebrates and remembers the power of creative, collective action.'
