The Fabric Of Protest Workshops

The People’s History Museum is running a series of workshops called “The Fabric Of Protest”.

Come along to this monthly creative workshop and share ideas of protest over a cup of tea, while learning new textile techniques. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, participants will work collaboratively to produce pieces of artwork rich in personal responses and exploration. Currently looking at the Match Girls’ Strike of 1888, we are working on a banner to commemorate the bravery of the girls and the start of unionism as we know it today. Participants can attend individual workshops or join us on a regular basis to shape how the work develops.

Artist Helen Mather leads The Fabric of Protest workshops.  You can follow what the participants are learning and creating on Helen’s tumblr blog.
