As part of BBC Radio Lancashires Arts&Craft segment, myself and artist, Ruth Evans, were invited to talk about the Irwell Tapestry. Aired at 7.30am on Saturday 31st March and Monday 2nd April catch it on BBC iPlayer now!
BBC Radio Lancashire have an annual celebration on the Arts & Crafts happening throughout the County. On Saturday 17th March, Ruth delivered a workshop on the Irwell Tapestry at Bacup Library. A well attended and productive session brought the Tapestry, and what is happening in Bacup, to the attention of BBC Radio Lancashire.
The interview was brilliant and I was able to give an overview on the THI project and what was happening in Bacup. Ruth then talked Helen through the tapestry and how it is a key tool in engaging with groups and individuals and creating a piece of art that reflects Bacup and its community.
