Let us celebrate LGBT+ History Month together in this bright, positive, joyful and colourful textile workshop.

We will talk about affirming visual symbols, learning about why we stand up for people and celebrate love and kindness.

This is an opportunity to understand the different properties of fabrics, and to learn about colour and building depth, using fabric scraps as your paint palette. Artist Melissa Cooney will guide children to build their textile illustration in layers. She will then instruct adult helpers to fix the fabric to the background and then children will follow her lead on some simple stitching to bring the artwork to life.

Suitable for 7-12 year olds.
