On my merry way to Brighton for this delightful shindig later! On a mission to get my feet in the sea first. First #petrolgirls show in ages - we’ve got our friend Jeremy stepping in on drums, sounded great in practice. So excited to gig again! Strong line up this one #feministpunkrock #internationalwomensday
Working on #petrolgirls artwork. Getting the mastered tracks for our debut ep back really soon, aiming to release it 20th March, release show at astbury 21st March. SO EXCITED. (at Astbury Castle)
Smashy Smashy. Last week I got the kids to do charcoal drawings of a teapot and mug then I told them I dropped it, and did they think I’d fixed it ok? They said I’m rubbish at fixing teapots but we still drew it like this and looked at some cubist pictures. #artteacher #cupoftea #sculpture
"Greek myths mention several Islands of Women, where Amazons lived without men, only consorting with neighboring colonies of males at certain seasons when they wanted to conceive their children. Taurus, Lemnos, and Lesbos were said to be such all-female societies. The Greeks apparently feared them. They said the women of Taurus sacrificed to their Goddess all men who landed on their shores; and the women of Lemnos had risen up against their husband and murdered all of them at once. The Greek writers seemed to have not doubt that women could destroy whole populations of adult males, and there was no effective defense against them."
ASOS magazine feature on Hollaback London! Check it out online to read the full article. I’m wearing our @houseofastbury Thelma and Louise tshirt which we produced for the first Hollaback Riot Night at ULU and is now available on www.houseofastbury.bigcartel.com - £5 from each shirt is donated to Hollaback to support their brilliant harassment smashing work. It says ‘you watch your mouth buddy’ in reflective ink on the back! #hollaback @ihollagram #asos
So doing shoulder stands in the bath is my new favourite thing
Thelma and Louise run against street harassment
House of Astbury in collaboration with Hollaback. You can buy these sweet Tees in our SHOP. To make everyone feel better, we will donate a fiver per T-shirt to Hollaback.
PS. The “You watch your mouth, buddy” is printed with reflective ink. How cool is that!
Test printed these @houseofastbury leggings today at @printclublondon then @estervankempen sewed them together.. Frankly I’m not sure this world is emotionally ready for such wonder. #reflective #screenprinting #thunderthighs (at Astbury Castle)
