To mark the centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK, a statue of Millicent Fawcett by artist Gillian Wearing was unveiled in London’s Parliament Square on April 24th 2018. The sculpture sees the Suffragist leader brandishing a placard proclaiming ‘Courage calls to courage everywhere’, and standing on a plinth emblazoned with the images of leading suffragist and suffragette campaigners.

It is from this cohort of dedicated men and women, working a century ago, that the inspiration for Wearing’s latest limited edition was drawn. Mayor of London’s Culture & Creative Industries Team and Plinth have worked with the artist to produce an edition of 1,000 embroidered handkerchiefs, each featuring signatures from 50 of these historic figures alongside those of Caroline Criado Perez and Gillian Wearing herself.

Part of the proceeds from the sale of the range are donated to the Fawcett Society, who have continued the work of their founder for more than 150 years in fighting for women’s rights and representation.

Meet The Designer

We design, make and sell merchandise and limited editions with leading cultural figures – from Turner Prize winners to world-renowned photographers. Since launching in February 2016, Plinth has undertaken projects with The Fourth Plinth (The Mayor of London), Ikon Gallery, Magnum Photos, The Wellcome Collection and artists such as Cornelia Parker, David Shrigley and Richard Deacon. Many of our editions and products are created for the home – a pure wool blanket from Julian Opie, a trio of plates by Michael Craig-Martin – but everything we make is designed with a philosophy in mind. We aim to make it easy for people to incorporate art and design into everyday life, and to participate in the cultural landscape of London with affordable products like mugs, badges, t-shirts, tote bags and more. We’re interested in art and design within the wider context of social, political and cultural events – as direct response, as antidote, autonomous or in dialogue. We believe that art becomes more imperative than ever during times of change and crisis, and we want to encourage as many people as possible to engage with it as something pleasurable and/or cathartic. We’re aware of the barriers, cultural, socio-economic and personal, which make the ‘art world’ feel hard to access for many people, and we’re keen to challenge both its established audience and the status quo. We interrogate the barriers between different spheres of creativity, propelled by the conviction that industries like art, music, film and fashion have far more in common than they do to separate them. ‘Art’, in any of these incarnations, can be enjoyed for its own sake – or as a means by which to understand the world we live in.
