Making A Start

I’m making a start on a new piece of work for the International Women’s Day exhibition, W.M.D. (Women of Many Dimensions) opening at Cinema & Co on March 8th. Print and stitch inspired by an inspirational artist and one of my heroes, Käthe Kollwitz. I’m aiming for a work made from paper that doesn’t need to be shown in a frame, but can still hang on a wall.

W.M.D. (above) will feature wall-based artwork from over 20 Welsh artists along with films, talks, food and performances and will be happening at Cinema & Co throughout March, along with other events in Swansea, which is actually quite a funky city.

The celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD) has been around for over a hundred years. Its roots were in the campaign to win votes for women and it was ratified by the United Nations in 1977 as a day for women’s equality and world peace.
