About

For hundreds of years, fabric arts and crafts have been used as a form of activism and protest.


Explore examples of arty activism from history. Try out different textile techniques. Make your own fabric piece promoting a cause you care about.


No sewing experience is needed.


This workshop is designed for teenagers aged 12 to 16. Accompanying adults are welcome, but not essential.
