Created in 2018 by a group of women in and around Moretonhampstead to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War and the introduction of women's right to vote in the UK. The banner was designed by local textile artist Veronica Gould. I helped the group to develop the skills needed to piece the banner together. The 'river' features the names of female relatives and ancestors of the women who made it. It was paraded through London as part of the Processions march in June 2018.
The national project was run by Artichoke who invited 100 groups across the country to work with women artists to make a banner.
