These are some of the Glory women I am working with at the Hunt Club in Deer Park, where I am currently a community artist in resident.
Also working on the project is an artist and community cultural development worker I deeply admire Angie Russi Angie undertakes interviews with the women about glory boxes and their story of the craft around making items for Glory Boxes.
I have a studio on sight that is looking very empty and sad, other than a rug and folding chair - one of the challenges is distance between my home and Deer Park (making for very early starts of a 5.15am train ride!) As well as the distance of language, culture and understanding of the process of making.
Like me they love to keep their hands busy, making things for others, things that are useful and beautiful. We are on the path to crossing community craft and creating into art - our canvas will a table cloth.
