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.
Explore The Fabric of Protest resources created for previous sessions
Be inspired by the textile creations of participants who have taken part in our monthly public workshops.

The current month’s accompanying 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 be making a mini banner to show solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers to protest the Nationality and Borders bill going through parliament.
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.
