You’re invited to join a series of relaxed, hands-on workshops to create a unique ‘Expressive Pocket’ using your own image, words and sound printed on fabric. Workshops are designed for connections and conversation for over 55s.

Workshops are FREE and materials will be provided.

Participants choose an image and words linked with a theme. “Age Rebellion” draws on the idea of craftivism, gentle protest and activism. We start by sharing our chosen words.

The participants UV print the image onto a fabric and make vinyls of the words and icons to embellish the image. All the while people feed into the conversation and share discoveries on the craft process. Everyone then records a sound file to go with the expressive pocket and link the sound with a QR code, so that the stories can be listened to alongside looking at the images.
