Hidden Mothers

Tereza Buskova and British tapestry, needlepoint, and textile artist Tina Francis worked collectively with women from Birmingham (Mothership Projects, Brushstrokes, British Red Cross) and women from London (Poplar Union) to make stitched insignias. Buskova also collaborated with e5 Bakehouse and made ceremonial sweet bread, inspired by Polish bread Kukielki, which was also carried in the Hidden Mothers procession.
