This month’s inspiration:
The ‘There Is No Planet B’ placard was acquired for PHM’s collection after the first Youth Climate Strike in Manchester in February 2019. It is a reminder about climate change and the effects that Covid-19 lockdown has had on nature. Take time to consider your relationship with nature through textiles and collage.
