What's your vision?
We would like a poster and the image designed (as we only have a black and white image & would like it colourised) for the folk opera/ballad of 'Rouse, Ye Women' - The story of Mary Macarthur and the women chainmakers 1910. Women chain-makers in the Black Country in the 1900s started work at the forge as children and spent their entire lives making chains. These ‘Slaves of the Forge’ worked long hours and earned the equivalent of 50 pence per week. But in 1910 the women chain-makers of Cradley Heath held a ten week strike led by trade unionist Mary Macarthur; a ‘Great Unrest’ that led to a landmark victory for a fair wage and changed the lives of thousands of workers earning ‘starvation wages’. ‘Rouse, Ye Women’ is a folk-song opera that tells the story of Mary Macarthur and the chainmakers, and shares the story of the lives of the workers and campaigners through rousing, heart-felt traditional song and music. Please use the style of lettering and artwork used on the magazine uploaded I have referenced it. Also I have uploaded some style of images I like that I think the main picture would benefit from, maybe to add colour. Please colourise or line draw the photo but something needs to happen to it so it stands out!!
