Radical Locks

  

A new project celebrating the achievements of the women of Tameside, past and present, coinciding with the centenary of women gaining the right to vote. The purposefully inclusive initiative takes place in late 2018 and early 2019 with groups across the borough. These include local textile groups, the Asian women’s organisation Khush Amdid, ESOL classes, a dementia support group, the Antony Seddon mental health charity and the Ashton neo-natal knitters.

The cloth banner captures within it locks of hair and so commemorates the women of Tameside today. Workshops are on going until mid December with sewing up sessions taking place from mid Jan – Feb. These include drop in sessions at Portland Basin Museum on the second and forth Wednesday of the month, 1 – 3pm, with additional venues in the borough to be announced.
