Once a month join this informal creative workshop for some stitching, chatting and sharing, inspired by the museum’s collections.
Create and share textile responses to the topics explored, using techniques taught by artist Helen Mather.
Bring along your own sewing projects to work on while watching and listening, or switch on your camera and microphone to join in the conversation and shape ideas worth fighting for to be explored in future workshops.
Keep an eye on Instagram @phmmcr to see the latest creations, and share yours using #fabricofprotest.
All textile abilities welcome, suitable for ages 11+ (under 18s must have an accompanying adult present during session).
