Drawing inspiration from Suffrage banners, participants at this
drop-in workshop are invited to make their own banners that engage,
provoke, empower, and express the ideas, concerns and hopes of
women in the 21st century.
Various examples of Suffrage and contemporary banners will be
available for reference and demonstrations of how to make
individual banners will take place throughout the day. Volunteers
will make a communal 'West Dean College' banner in Suffrage colours
of violet, green, and white.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own materials, though
materials and equipment will be available. The workshop is
organised by Visual Arts tutor Sarah Hughes, in collaboration with
Visual Arts Alumni, Jill Laudet and Sarah Cliff.
Participants are invited to join West Dean College at the
mass-participation artwork PROCESSIONS on 10th June
