Join this informal creative workshop each month for some stitching, chatting and sharing, all 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 help to share the ‘ideas worth fighting for’ that will feature in future workshops.
Explore The Fabric of Protest resources created for previous sessions.
Be inspired by the textile creation of participants who have taken part in our monthly public workshops.

The current month’s acompanying resource will be available one week in advance of the session.
Explore the connections between migration and textiles, and the ways in which textiles can represent people, movement and culture.
We will make three-dimensional (3D) orange hearts with stitched messages of welcome and hope for Afghan refugees who are spending their first winter in the UK.
These messages will be shared with the Refugee Council as part of their campaign, ‘Write your message of hope.’
We will continue to make the 3D hearts in our online workshop on Sat 29 January 2022. You can attend one or both of these workshops; our accompanying resource will support you to continue making in your home setting.
Download the accompanying resource to find out more and gather materials and equipment to use in the session.
All textile abilities welcome, suitable for 11+ (under 18s must have an accompanying adult present during session)
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.
