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.
Participants will produce individual pieces that will combine to create a collaborative installation that will be displayed in the museum. Participants can attend individual workshops or join us on a regular basis to shape how the work develops.
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.
Suitable for adults and young people over age 11
Sent out approximately every two months.
