A tote bag for our times
Together with young women in St Helens, artist Kate Hodgson designed a tote bag in response to the current COVID-19 situation.
The design has been inspired by a series of creative workshops Kate delivered with young care leavers living in St Helens during February and March, just before lockdown happened.
In the creative workshops Kate and the young women explored lots of ideas including how different shapes and colours represent different moods and emotions, and together created a series of designs exploring these ideas.
The ‘It’s Cool to be Kind’ design has been screen printed onto 300 tote bags which will be made available to young people living in St Helens.
