Really Rubbish Weaving

Create a fun, colourful and “rubbish” hanging piece of art whilst exploring amazing archive materials relating to textiles and banners in local protest movements through time, ’found’ and unearthed objects and local textiles production.Join artist Liz Chapman to create small scale woven hangings. Turn waste products such as packaging, plastic bags, scraps of fabric and threads into a treasured piece of art work.

The weavings are made using simple DIY cardboard looms and plastic waste.

For adults keen to make art work whilst learning about our past and being mindful of the environment and waste.
