Wonder Women Drop in session:
As a part of the Wonder Woman Project (hosted by partner PCVS) , Metal and artist Sa’adiah Khan held a series of art workshops at Paston Farm for women in the area. During these workshops we explored different artforms whilst having conversations about what they would like to see change in their area, how they would like it to develop or what activities they would like to have available to them.
On the 7th of October, from 10.30am – 1pm, Sa’adiah will be at Paston Farm community centre to create an interactive display inspired by all the artworks the woman made, including quotes and recommendations.
We’re inviting women to come along and help Sa’adiah create the display, join for a chat over a cuppa and continue the conversations about what you would like to see happening in your area. Drop in for as long or as little as you like, keep Sa’adiah company or join in with the making of the display.
