Conflict Textiles workshop
1 May 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Conflict Textiles workshop with curator Roberta Bacic
Conflict Textiles curator Roberta Bacic and 2 contributor textile artists will facilitate a hands on inter-generational workshop building on the exhibition’s focus Reflections on Refugees: Communicating through Art .
Roberta will start with a guided tour to the exhibition so as to create momentum and interest in participating. In the ‘hands-on’ session participants will be invited to make an arpillera doll that engages either from 1st hand experience or in solidarity with the experience of others.
Working through the medium of textile and thread we aim at making a new piece for Refugee Day 2022, June 20th.
Backing for the final piece and basic materials will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring a personal textile scrap that has a sentimental value/connection to our focus.
The admission fee is £5 with proceeds going towards the Disasters Emergency Committee.
