HOW IT FEELS TO BE PART OF OUR WOMEN'S PROJECTS
PAST WOMEN'S PROJECTS
One of our core projects is She Made That, an empowering craft project. We ran pilots in 2018 and in 2020/21, and we are currently seeking funding for the next one.
She Made That craft and enterprise project (2020/21) in Levenshulme, Longsight, Gorton and Rusholme & online. This was a six month project supporting a cohort of 25 women to build their confidence and wellbeing, and to work towards their goals. Through weekly craft sessions, mentoring and sales opportunities. Culminating in a showcase and market at Levenshulme Old Library.
She Made That project (2018) in Longsight, working with local women's groups making lino prints, protest banners, and body scrubs and celebrating with an event showcasing work from our groups and other local women artists.
