Warp & Weft is an arts, crafts and heritage initiative celebrating diverse lives & voices.
Jenny White is an arts & heritage co-ordinator and blanket-stitch fan. She’s curious about the way different sections of society are represented in the media and history books, and is drawn to those whose stories aren’t usually told. She made the Big Up Female Boffins banner.
Helen Davies is an artist specialising in needlecrafts; she is interested in the social history of craft and women. She crocheted masks representing eight inspiring Mancunian women for the Stature project. She also makes monsters. Spot Helen’s Venus of Custard in Bob & Roberta Smith’s Art Party film.
Thanks to textile artist Oly Bliss for hemming the Big-Up Female Boffins banner .
