The original concept of a cervix made out of wool felt, developed into The Felt Cervix Project. Formed in 2011 as a collaborative art installation, with the purpose of creating a large scale sculpture made up of the collected cervices.

The project aims to highlight the importance of sexual and reproductive familiarity, education and empowerment. The scope is purposefully broad and undifferentiated to accommodate the many issues surrounding women’s bodies.

This is an ongoing project, there is no end date at this time. Cervices will be accepted to add to the installation through 2013 and perhaps beyond.

A pattern with instructions on how to knit and felt your own cervix is available here
