The Wild Washer Women
August 2016 - a week of activities and experiments on the canal tow path of Church, Accrington, with Idle Women Rachel Anderson and Cis O'Boyle.
Responding to the children's book The Wild Washer Women (Quentin Blake and John Yeoman), Sarah Cole worked with local women over a week, leading to a culmination of ideas and a celebration event on Saturday 6th August. Outcomes included a performed story re-telling by artist-in-residence Mojisola Adebayo, musical saw playing, soap making, giant bubble releasing and horse-hankie hanging. Listed in a-n online.
