An Talla Solais is one of a hundred groups nationwide making a celebratory banner as part of a mass participation artwork to mark 100 years of votes for women. A series of workshops are being led by textile artist Lizzie McDougall and run on Thursday evenings until 10th May. Places are fully subscribed.
Our finished banner, which will celebrate the spirit, strength and talent of women living in the highlands, will join a mass procession in Edinburgh on 10th June to create a living portrait of women in the 21st century.
'Processions' is commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary and produced by Artichoke. With support from the National Lottery and from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
