Since the beginning of Covid 19 pandemic and the lockdown, CDM UK have been working with the local disadvantaged vulnerable women to help them cope with its impact, by offering online textile workshops, teaching them how to make reusable, washable, durable and breathable cotton masks and scrub bags. These were then supplied to local hospitals, doctors and nurses, local places of worship and to people within the local community who cannot afford to buy masks. CDM UK also encouraged these women to use their creative skills to make textile based art work to reflect how they felt about Covid 19.
CDM’s display for 50 Windows, entitled ‘Covid 19 Pandemic & Local Women’s Rsponse’ is a recreation of their studio workspace and its colourful creations. “Our installation includes various designs of face masks, scrub bags and other art work related to Covid 19 to showcase local disadvantaged vulnerable women’s work. It is a ‘window’ into the impact of the various forms of abuse, who suffer from a rage of physical and mental health issues, coped with the lockdown through the use of their creative skills.”
