The collaborative banner Dorcas made in the summer for PROCESSIONS is featured in the latest edition of Selvedge Magazine in an article alongside Grayson Perry’s banner and the Bayeaux tapestry.
Dorcas’s banner was one of 100 commissioned centenary banners that formed part of PROCESSIONS, a mass participation artwork that took place on 10 June. Students from Strode College joined women and girls from across the UK who came together in London to process the banners in June. The banner they made is influenced by original Suffrage banners and incorporates the unique culture of the county. Glastonbury Festival wrist bands are woven into the design.
PROCESSIONS was produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary. www.processions.co.uk
