The Fabric of Protest

Monthly creative textile workshop

16 September 2017

The Fabric of Protest @ People's History Museum

Time 13:00 - 15:30

Duration 2 hours 30 minutes

Cost In order to keep our events programme affordable to everyone, please make a donation.  Suggested donation £3

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 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.
