older women rock!

leah thorn is a a spoken word poet in her late 60s. ‘older women rock!’ is a project of poetry, retro clothes, performance and film that grew out of her experience of ageing as a woman and from conversations with other older women.
leah is collaborating with some fantastic older women artists – sculptor nicholette goff, knitting artist deborah nash, fashion stylist and fashion lecturer claire angel, textile artist trish bishop and members of the profanity embroidery group – who are embroidering, burning, printing, cutting, beading, engraving and staining her poetry onto retro clothes and accessories, together creating a pop-up political art space in which to raise awareness and explore issues facing women in their late 50’s and 60’s.
