Hour or Two

Make a carnival costume

We are taking part in the Colchester carnival procession and want to represent Essex women over the last 100 years. Can you make us a 'no vote no tax' umbrella, a land army uniform or knit us a 'pussy hat'? There are lots of other possibilities for you to get crafty for us

What's involved?

Sign up to make props or costumes for us. We will need them by September 14th and will pay for any materials you need and help to get them to the people taking part in the procession. If you are making costumes then we'll put you in touch with the person who will be wearing it so you can decide together what will work best- we will also pay for travel costs if you need to meet for fittings etc.


Why get involved?

This will be a fun way to celebrate the achievements of Essex Women and help us in our campaign to get rid of the negative stereotype of the 'Essex Girl' 

How to get involved?

Step 1: Sign in to your account or sign up

Step 2: Accept the challenge

Step 3: We will email you a list of possible costumes and props
