Connect with your local environment using leaves, flowers, weeds and grass to produce prints with a pounding method called Hapazome, which releases natural pigments into fabric. Why not bring your own botanical collection to print with?
This spring break workshop looks at clothing and identity, inspired by the costumes created for the ‘Threads That Bind Us’ display in the More in Common: in memory of Jo Cox exhibition (until Sun 24 April 2022). The display has been created by a group of four artists with the support of artist Ibukun Baldwin. This creative collaboration forms part of PHM’s More in Common project, it explores the past, present and future through the eyes of Manchester’s diverse population and its roots in colonialism through the cotton trade and fashion industries.
Hapazome printing can be noisy! You may want to bring noise cancelling headphones, or borrow a pair of ours. If you have queries or require any assistance, please contact the museum in advance of your visit by phoning 0161 838 9190, or by emailing email@example.com. Phones and emails will be answered by staff Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00am to 4.00pm.
