create a mini protest banner
Saturday 10th September 10-4 Gnome House, E17:
Come join us to hear about this history of women activists in East London, and use their stories to create a mini protest banner. All ages and abilities welcome.
From Sylvia Pankhurst, to Women United Against Racism, East London has long been a hub of social activism. However, the stories about women are often sidelined or lost completely. In her Footsteps is a local heritage project that seeks to readdress the gender balance, by shining a light on these unsung female heros.
Come help us celebrate these incredible women, or some you may know yourself, by making a mini protest banner inspired by them.
Please note: this is not a sewing course. However, the template to follow will be very simple and our support workers will be on hand to help the less experienced.
