Princess Sophia Duleep Singh : Mural Design Workshops


Thanks to funding from Women's Vote Centenary Grant Scheme, Arts La'Olam is working with Artful Skecha and Guru Nanak Gurdwara Ipswich this Saturday 15th December and next Saturday 22nd December 11-3pm.

Women and children from all communities are welcome, please bring a donation for the temple, a Langar lunch will be provided.

There will be an optional Punjabi class available during the workshop, and some Punjabi language will form part of the workshop.

We will be developing ideas for a mural honouring Princess Sophia Duleep Singh (8 August 1876 – 22 August 1948), a prominent suffragette who lived in Thetford, East Anglia.

This project celebrates East Anglia's connection to the Punjab and to the Women’s Centenary, 100 years of votes for women.

Ipswich Borough Council has granted permission for us to use a site on Ipswich Waterfront where the finished mural will be painted.

The group will benefit from art workshops where they will be encouraged to explore and enjoy creativity and talk about Princess Sophia Duleep Singh contribution to women's votes and women's voices in communities and civic life.

The finished mural design should be hand-painted, beautiful, of an excellent standard and at least 3mx6m, it will be painted in the Spring, in a prominent location near Ipswich Waterfront.
