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).
Click the ‘show previous dates’ button to find other Fabric of Protest resources, starting from June 2020.
Explore the connections between migration and textiles, and the ways in which textiles can represent people, movement and culture. Part of PHM’s More in Common project
Inspired by the legacy of murdered MP Jo Cox (16 June 2016), PHM’s More in Common project involves a group of over 30 people from different backgrounds who made Manchester their home, coming together to share knowledge, experiences, and conversations.
The More in Common project and exhibition are part of CultureLabs, receiving funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
Part of PHM’s programme exploring migration, co-created by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.
