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.
