Illuminated Letters - write to a real woman who inspires you: Oban
Posted on: Friday 8th November 2013Morag Smith of the Glasgow Women's Library will be leading this writing/craft workshop.8th November, 10am-12noon. Oban Fire Station
Use beautiful gems, embellishments and other craft materials to create an illuminated letter. The letter can be as long or as short as you like. We can help you write it and you don't need any artistic or craft experience.
Glasgow Women's Library's illuminated letters project is asking women from all over the world to celebrate the life of a real woman from the past who inspires them. We are inviting women and girls locally, nationally and internationally to create their own illuminated letters to lost heroines: women who are no longer alive but whose histories and achievements deserve to be remembered. You can write to someone from our list of 100 inspirational women, you can write to a local Renfrewshire woman or you can write to another woman who has been important and inspirational in your life.
All the letters from this project will be exhibited at Glasgow Women's Library on International Women's Day in March 2014.
