Come along to this monthly creative workshop and create your own piece of protest art that reflects the issues that are important to you.  Using a range of protest materials, including ribbons, rosettes, patches, flags and badges, artist Helen Mather will ask participants to contribute to an art piece using their slogan for change.

Participants will produce individual pieces that will combine to create a collaborative installation that will be displayed in the museum.  Participants can attend an individual workshop or join us on a regular basis to shape how the installation develops.

If you would like to book a group onto this event please contact lisa.gillen@phm.org.uk.
