The Fabric of Protest
Sat 19 November 2016, 13:00 – 15:30 GMT
Come along to this monthly textile workshop and contribute to our collective ideas of protest. Looking at the different areas of the museum’s collections we will be discussing ideas over a cup of tea and learning new textile techniques each session. Through our shared curiosity in the history of people’s protest we will work collaboratively to produce pieces of art work rich in personal responses and exploration.
Currently looking at the Match Girl’s Strike of 1888, we are working on a banner piece to commemorate the bravery of the girls and the start of unionism as we know it today.
*Please note this session will be extended to 3.30pm to allow extra time to include a drama performance Strike A Light! A Match Girls Story.
Participants can attend an individual workshop or join us on a regular basis to shape how the work develops.
Suitable for adults and young people over 11yrs
