HOUSE WORK CASTLE MILK WOMAN HOUSE is a project which explores the importance of the pioneering work of women involved in the Castlemilk Womanhouse project which existed between 1990 and 1995. For the last year, Glasgow Women’s Library has worked closely with the artist Kate Davis to research and explore the Castlemilk Womanhouse collection.
