They were very nice students, very intelligent, very polite. You don’t hear about young people doing good, I’ve got to admire them.
I find that fashion has a circle. I can always remember having my first pair of pointy toe high heeled shoes. My mum went ballistic. You tried to follow it, with the teddy girls. I’ve been and done it and got the t-shirt. Barbara (76), talking about fashions around the time of second world war and just after; and the work she’s been doing with second year fashion students.
I don’t often post job ads here, but this one is close to my heart being early years, Manchester and visual arts.

UPDATE: THIS ROLE HAS NOW BEEN FILLED, THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST
Are you someone, or can you recommend someone in the NW who runs zine making workshops?
I’m looking for someone who can do the old fashioned cut+paste style with nothing but paper, photocopier, scissors and sticky. Would also need to include the book making / paper folding element, and be based on music (taking Joy Division as a starting point in this instance, but only as an example which will enable young people and other members of the public to create their own zine, maybe for their own band, or any other areas of interest)
Needs experience as this is paid work for a museum community programme, likely to be Saturday(s) or eves in July and / or August.
