The Heart of Hepworth

The finished work will be displayed in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from the 15th June for 2 weeks.
Working on the Hepworth project, over the last six months, a collaboration with poet Shamshad Khan and a group of women in the Falinge area of Rochdale is so interesting. As ever the catalyst is a creative collaboration, but the outcomes in terms of discussions and sharing are so varied and wonderful. Our cloth and poems are shown in the cafe of Touchstones Gallery from 15th June.
