A facilitated session making dangerous pockets.
It is inspired by the poem Dangerous Coats by Sharon Owens which speaks to the laws prohibiting women from having pockets in their coats where they could hide seditious propaganda about women’s suffrage.
There only 2 rules for the pockets. They should be made from recycled materials and they need a tabs, grommets, or casing in which the cord is passed so the pockets can be displayed like bunting.
There are contributions coming in from all over the world. Some speak to women’s rights, some to women’s issues (for example pockets made from half bras as a nod to women who’ve had mastectomies. Some are memories of mothers and grans made from old aprons.
