Event description

Description

Come along to this monthly creative workshop and share ideas of protest over a cup of tea, while learning new textile techniques. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, participants will work collaboratively to produce pieces of artwork rich in personal responses and exploration. Being at the centre of textile production in Manchester historically, we will collect personal stories, learn about the conditions for workers, and compare the industry from past to present with global textile production and zero hours contracts.

Artist Helen Mather leads The Fabric of Protest workshops. You can read Helen’s latest blog post and follow what the participants are learning and creating on Helen’s tumblr blog.

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.
