Join textile artist Sarah-Joy Ford for a hands-on craft workshop inspired by queer activism, visual culture and community story telling.
In this workshop you will be able to tell your own queer story, share a memory, protest or idea, as you create your own mini LGBTQ+ textile banner which can be hung on a dowling rod ready to be marched with or hung up.
You’ll be using heat bond applique, hand stitching and embellishment techniques and tassel making. All the materials will be provided and you will be able to take your banner home with you. There is no previous experience necessary, and everyone is welcome!
Sarah-Joy Ford will also have some of her amazing work on exhibition in The Everyman Theatre. No booking necessary the gallery is open (on the first floor) during the Everyman opening times – from 11am-3pm Monday to Saturday, or till the show starts on performance days.
Sarah-Joy Ford is an artist, researcher and Associate Lecturer who explores the complexities and pleasures of queer communities, histories and archives though their work.
