Textiles Inspired by Women Photographed in Stafford Prison 1877-1916.
Friday 24th July 2020
In this talk, I will look at the background to this project which I started in 2012, creating textiles about the stories of Victorian and Edwardian women prisoners. As well as showing the textile artworks from the touring exhibition, I will also share some of the historical research which the volunteer team and I put together, including case studies of several women and my own research into prison clothing visible in the photographs.
This talk will be live on Zoom with a recording available afterwards. You will be able to ask questions. Book here.
