Thank you to the Shipley Gallery in Gateshead for inviting us to do a pop up shop as part of their Craftivism show. Louise bought a couple of raincoats from a charity shop and we stitched elastic inside so we could flash our stock.
It is quite a traditional gallery with marble statues and oil paintings.
It was brave of them to stage a Craftivism show. Three were people making all sorts of things all over the place.

I had to do a talk. And so did Trevor Pitt, who got everybody on the mic, and then,

We went on the radio.There's a lot of pictures of us posing because Trevor had the camera.

Louise was reading the history of anarchism. There are wonderful discos in Newcastle. We had a lot of fun dancing and in the morning after a full breakfast we went to the Baltic and saw some art.
This is the car park which features in the film ' Get Carter'. It was being pulled down when we were there.
