Dangerous Pockets Project - Exhibition
Someone clever once said
Women were not allowed pockets
In case they carried leaflets
To spread sedition
Dangerous Coats by Sharon Owens
Workshop: Thursday December 19th 6-8pm
Devised by visual artist Paula MacGregor, a community art collaboration that anyone anywhere can take part in - simply make some pockets and be part of this fun, ongoing, growing touring exhibition. There will be a Northampton workshop taking place in November, date to be confirmed.
"After reading the above poem I knew it would be perfect for an art project - and I would like you to be part of it by making pockets and sending them to me. I will thread them onto red cord and make them into a travelling art exhibition." Paula MacGregor
Please check our Facebook page for opening times which vary, or call 01604 633912.
