‘Older Women Rock!’ knits…


Local knitting artist Tatty Bunting on her way to Wilko to set up a display of two dresses made from Wilko wool and adorned with words from  an ‘Older Women Rock!’ group poem –

‘ The power of an older woman

is a paperclip, holding all together.

It is a rebellious piece of jewellery,

a box of coloured feathers

waiting for a moment to flash out.

The power of an older woman

is stamped through her

as certainly as the name of a seaside resort

through a stick of rock ‘

Tatty went on to lead a well-received ‘Arm & Finger Knitting’ workshop in Dance Easy

‘Arm knitting was lots of fun. I met some lovely older women, I enjoyed the music. We definitely rocked!’  Pam


the pop-up exhibition opens…

Space Gallery, 7 Old High Street, Folkestone CT20 1RJ

Open Wednesdays to Sundays, 11am-5pm until 12 March 2017

“The Older Women Rock! Exhibition opened at Space Gallery Folkestone last night – do go see it, it’s genuinely brilliant and the clothes/artwork are beautiful, funny, challenging, and make you think. Leah Thorn‘s vision for women’s liberation permeates all the work, which is a combination of hers and older women collaborators (including the wonderfully named Profanity Embroidery Group). Well worth a trip to Folkestone – think of it as a Triennial Taster!”
