Aiming for the majority of this to be done today. Please! #cosmicu #womanstanley
First layer progress of Cosmic U project. Second session to continue tomorrow, another layer or two then to add the threaded background.
Still in the planning stages of backdrop to hang it on whether it be painted or hung in a found space.
Woman Stanley are an Art collective based in North West England for all creative women who have something to say, something to express, something to show you.
A welcoming space that hopes to showcase the most wonderfully talented human beings around. We are a group dedicated to creating a patchwork community of women with diverse gifts and interests from all backgrounds and experiences. With the sharing of visual art, music, stories and past times, we aim to weave the gravity of serious issues together with the merriment of being a grrrl!

If you’re on Soundcloud (whether you’re musician or just like to listen to things) give us a follow perhaps? We enjoy making compilations of nice sounding things. Things that you may or may not have heard but enjoy?
Another little branch from the Woman Stanley creative collective anyhow!
Pussy Riot members freed from prison
December 19, 2013
Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova, 24, andMaria Alekhina, 25, were released from prison, three months before their scheduled release, according to Reuters. The two women and fellow band member Yekaterina Samutsevich were arrested for performing
Punk Prayer: Mother of God Drive Putin Away from Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral on February 21, 2012. Their crime: “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred or hostility.”
While Samutsevich successfully appealed her sentence, the other two punk rockers remained, despite global cries for the their release. Earlier this week, a new Russian amnesty law was passed. According to The Associated Press, prisoners “who haven’t committed violent crimes, first-time offenders, minors and women with small children” are granted amnesty from their imprisonment. During their time, Alekhina went on a hunger strike and Tolokonnikova wrote an open letter, protesting the treatment of prisoners. Just days after that letter was posted, she disappeared for 21 days during a prison transfer, showing up in a Siberian prison hospital.
In a news conference, President Vladimir Putin expressed no regret for the Pussy Riot members. “I was not sorry that they ended up behind bars,” he said. “I was sorry that they were engaged in such disgraceful behaviour, which in my view was degrading to the dignity of women.”

For the lack of updates lately. I’ve been sorting things in life out and have not had much time to bead. Alas a neon yellow beanie arrived at my front door today in which means a new balaclava will appear soon.
There will be a meeting this weekend about organisation of the Woman Stanley exhibition for early 2014 so if anyone who see’s this is from the North West of England, female and would like to get involved creatively or otherwise let me know! There will be more meetings in future!
In other news, myself and Snew will be attending a talk by the curators of the LET’S START A PUSSY RIOT book on Friday in Manchester. The event is free so, again, for all in the region, come!
Omg if you ever sell your balaclavas put me down for one! :) they're awesome x
Amazing! Thank you so much! Once I have a good amount finished I’ll start selling for sure :) x
I would literally love to order one of your balaclavas if you ever want to sell one they are BEAUT and also sick
Thank you very, very, much!
I’ve been considering selling them for a while but not really had the guts I guess! Once the new pieces are finished I’ll see about setting up a little Etsy shop for sure!
Thank you again x
