The Babygrow Project

With Peter and Sally Snelling

The Babygrow Project

Teenage boys and girls from Westfield Arts College, All Saints School and youth groups at NACRO, Tides, Compass have been working with artists Sally and Peter Snelling to create and stitch images onto babygrows.

The stitched designs contain messages about their hopes, dreams and fears - honest, personal, funny, sad and raw they explore what it is like to be young and facing the pressures of sexual relationships in 2011. Have a look at the babygrow blog about the project containing films and images and listen to their views about the project and what it means to them.
