We are, like many autonomous spaces in the area, facing eviction very soon so we hope you will join us celebrating this space and bringing energy to our resistance and our next space.
Friday 11th & Saturday12th April 2008 are Days of Action for Squats & Autonomous spaces see http://www.wombles.org.uk/topics/scn/april2008.
During the day we will also be running some fun workshops at the space. See timetable below.
Saturday 12th April:
Knicker Making Workshop
12pm - 5pm, Saturday 12th April
Materials (please bring as much of this as you can, some things we can share, some
thingswe can bring spares of): for the 1st part, making the pattern, you need big sheets of paper, pencil, eraser, ruler, set square, sellotape,paper scissors and a tape measure.
for the 2nd part, making your knickers, you need stretchy fabric (wide enough to go
around your hips and long enough to go through your legs), fabric scissors, needle and
thread, and whatever ribbons, fabric paint, applique, dead frogs, frills, or other trimmings
you want to decorate them with.
Drag Kings, Drag Queens, FTF, cross-species, anything in between!
Materials:Clothes of all kinds dresses, shoes, suits etc - dress up as whatever you want, for Drag Kinging make sure shirts are not tailored at the waist and that the trousers sit on the hipbones, rather than up. wide clothes make sense.It would be good if everyone could bring a make up brush and scissors,Also 1-3 condoms (don't ask, but it'll be fun) If anyone has any artificial hair and mastix (theatrical glue) please bring too.If ppl want to bind away their breasts they will need wide elastic bandages, strong ones. Make up. Props and costumes of all kinds.
