MARCH 2020

Saturday 7th April – Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Assosiation Symposium ‘Women as Nation Builders’ @ The Multi-Faith Centre – 11.30am -1.30pm

I am hugely grateful to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Assosiation for asking me to come and share Veiled Voices 2020 at their annual symposium in celebration of International Women’s Day. Alongside sharing the project and offering a chance to see the developing embroidery attendees will be invited to contribute their voice via the ‘Voices drop-box’, these contributions will then be embroidered onto the veil by future participants.

Monday 23rd March – Stitch-In @ University of Derby, Kedleston Road Campus – 10am – 2pm

Calling all University of Derby students and staff… drop into the rest area opposite Sub-way and add your voice to the Veiled Voices 2020 Conversation. ‘Donate’ a word in the ‘Voices drop-box’ for someone else to embroider or take some time out and make your own mark by trying your hand at a little embroidery, no experience necessary.

Tuesday 24th March – Embroidery Workshop @ The Multi-Faith Centre -10am-12 noon.

Join me for a two hour workshop to design your own personal message, word or image and then embroider it, alongside fellow participants, as we work collaboratively on this evolving artwork. No experience necessary.

The Multi-Faith Centre can be found in the grounds of the University of Derby, Kedleston Road, DE22 1GB. Pay and display parking is available but needs to be booked prior to the event, please ask for details.
