A creative exploration of conflict textiles around the world and protest banners in Northern Ireland.
Join us as we explore the art of the banner. This series of creative workshops will explore the skills involved in creating a protest banner, the messages they convey and how the protest banner is as relevant today as it was for our past generations.
You will also get the chance to create your own ‘conflict textile’
and have it featured on the Making the Future websites and the CAIN
This programme is open to all abilities, and would be ideal for anyone wanting to find out more about statement protest and trade union banners, or with an interest in NI politics. Prior experience of working with textiles isn't required, although a basic level of knowledge would be beneficial.
