Remember our Stature Project where we yarnbombed man statues in Manchester Town Hall with crochet masks of amazing Mancunian women?

Well artist Helen Davies who made the epic women masks has an exhibition at The Make it Shop in Chorlton, part of Chorlton Arts Festival. This weekend is final few days of exhibition, so get your skates on to 488 Wilbraham Road, M21 9AS 🙂
