Wythenshawe Forever!

Tea Cosy Army

Wythenshawe Forever! was a project initiated by UHC. Five artists were commissioned to work with local residents on energy-saving projects, and the energy saved over the course of the project was logged. Wythenshawe Forever! culminated in the ‘Party Without Pollution’, a festival powered by the energy saved and generated throughout the project.

I worked with local residents to produce Wythenshawe-themed tea cosies; the knitting workshops took place in the Power Station, a shipping container powered by solar panels. Wythenshawe may be an ‘area of multiple deprivation’ but residents are intensely proud of it and its green spaces.
