I contacted Corrine on the number her dad gave me and we text-arranged a day and time to meet. Corrine invited me to visit her at her home! The exclamation mark on that last sentence is because its the first time since starting  Pockets of […] that I’ve been invited to somebody’s private home.
Aside from her time studying textiles and fine art at university, Corrine has lived in Coventry all her life. She works as a secondary school teacher teaching art to year sevens. She told me about a recent project in which her students constructed commemorative Remembrance Day yellow/golden poppies out of plastic bottles.
For the assemblage, Corrine gave a ticket for a match between Coventry City FC and Stevenage on 20 April 2018. Google says that Coventry’s Sky Blues beat Stevenage 3-1 on the day!
Corrine then sent me to see her good friend and work colleague Lucy at wherever it is Lucy agrees to meet me.
