About the Hosts:

Anjum Malik is a British Pakistani poet, script writer and filmmaker, she is also a senior lecturer in creative writing at Manchester Metropolitan University.  Anjum is inspired by food, from growing, picking, preparing, cooking and eating it. She writes food poetry and drama and teaches how to carry out this culinary creativity.  She also writes drama for BBC regularly, and specialises in working with hard to reach groups enabling their own creative writing and writing their stories.  Over 80 of her scripts have been produced, transmitted and/or preformed, her poetry is in numerous anthologies as well as her own collection.

Natalie Linney is a Manchester based artist and educator exploring textile, form, pigment and print.

In her practice, Natalie utilises ancient dyeing techniques with natural and man-made objects found in the contemporary urban environment to produce entirely unique pieces. Working with traditional methods, she creates striking and delicate patterns which emerge in unpredictable ways to reflect the materials used and the place in which it was produced.

Through the deliberately slow and sensitive process of natural dyeing and the hyper-local, seasonal approach to textile printing, Natalie draws attention to the globalised, alienated and exploitative practices of the textile industry. By rooting her practice in locally sourced found materials and the contemporary, creative use of ancient craft methods, her work seeks to challenge the disposable textile culture that has emerged in recent years.
