Holiday Textile Workshop: The Material Power of Us

Join artist Hilary Cox Condron to explore how creativity can reflect strength and resilience, while helping process difficult emotions. For ages 11–16 years.

  • 26th October 2023 - 26th October 2023
  • 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Inspired by Material Power: Palestinian Embroidery, we will create artwork exploring symbols of identity and strength. We’ll also recognise personal losses and challenges — from climate change to relationships or moving schools. Using textiles, natural inks, selfies and creative processes, we’ll develop ways to express our feelings, resilience and power.

Please bring a packed lunch with you.

We anticipate this workshop may include emotional content and have set the workshop ages accordingly. If booking for your child, please do be aware of this.
