Inspired by the museum’s 2022 Banner Exhibition, we will bring together individual pieces created in previous workshops (including the online workshop on Saturday 24 September 2022), into a larger collective patchwork that responds to the theme of migration.
Learn patchwork and quilting techniques, and how to make patterns on fabric using appliqué and drawing.
All textile abilities welcome, suitable for ages 11+ (under 18s must have an accompanying adult).
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.
