The Archive Project @ The Cello Factory

Thank you to everyone who came to the exhibition and the private view, especially Susan, and Professor Lesley Millar for opening it.  We all had a great time and look forward to seeing you next time in September 2018 at The Cello Factory with the next Archive Project work.

Here are some more detailed images of the work.

Images of work in progress: Denise Jones

Here are three images of work inspired by my research at the Museum of London and the Women’s Library at LSE, into embroidered cloths made by suffragettes in Holloway Prison 1911-1912 following the window breaking campaign.
They will be exhibited at the next exhibition at The Cello Factory at Waterloo in May 2107. Please come and see.
