A Bright Future
Large pennant accompanied by two small pennants created for the Procession event in London organised by Artichoke to celebrate 100 years of votes for women. On the large pennant, the words 'A BRIGHT FUTURE' was appliqued on the white fabric base. It was also decorated sewed pre-cut fabrics in the shapes of the sun and landscape. Green, white and violet ribbons attached to it.
Each small pennant featured a historical figure, Rosa Parks and Emmeline Pankhurst. They were chosen as inspirational women by the maker, Sophie Dewar.
All pennants were edged with purple bias binding tape with long ends for tying onto a pole.
Apart from the two small pennants acquired by the Crafts Council, one more was created with the figure of Boadicea. This is retained by the makers.
