Science, Botany, Creativity and Suffragettes!

Wednesday, 3rd March 2021, 19:00 - 20:00

Science, Botany, Creativity and Suffragettes!
Woman botanists and how the feminist message used plants and stitching to help their cause

A talk and visual investigation – One of our month long programme of events to celebrate International Women’s Day

Focusing on a few female botanists, Zoë will be exploring through artistry and vision, the connecting plant power in protest through direct message and re-useable textile banners and stitch

Zoë teaches textiles and natural dyes at Morley College which has historical links to the SLBI and has a background in fashion. As a textile artist versed in natural dyes from plants, she has recently developed an inspired interest in how textiles were used by the suffragettes, and how together with fashion these helped to disseminate clear feminist messages.
