Threads of Memory - Windrush #1 Most Racist Was In White Church

Fading away with memories lost. It is a history that should be recorded.

Threads of Memory #2

Well, it's definitely #2 but not sure who it will be a portrait of. I have 3 volunteers and want to do one of Benjamin Zephaniah who is very inspiring and definitely one of the Windrush generation, but not exactly local.

First things first though, I need to find a suitable bits of material to make them on. Benjamin's is sorted which may be why I want to get on with his portrait so much. The fabric is a collage of images I drew of Brum's landmarks.

First layers of stitching and first layers of paint. Much more to do including transcribing words from quite a long video.
