Event description

Description

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.

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.
