Women star in Museum
We had a great trip down the road (or two) to the Museum of London last week. Their new display, ‘Archaeology in Action’ gives pride of place to the lovely wall-hanging created by the women’s group of St Hilda’s.
Go and see it at the Museum sometime over the next 3 months when it is going to be on display. It’s easy to find and very prominent – go into the main entrance and you can’t miss it, just a few feet away to your right.
The hanging is called ‘Bagaan’ or ‘Garden’ and was inspired by Arnold Circus – its natural life and the buildings around that help to give it its sense of community. The whole piece is a breath of fresh air – full of birds and foliage, a lone squirrel, benches and butterflies.
The first person to go the Museum and let us know how many leaves they can count in ‘Bagaan’ before August 11th wins a prize… (so long as they are correct, of course)
