Experiment with constructed textiles techniques

Join us as we work our textiles muscles! 

Visit a range of different constructed textiles stations set up in Tate Exchange. Spend five minutes at each – or an hour at one – exploring and experimenting with constructed textiles techniques. Make something to take away with you, or collaborate with others in creating our giant knit.

No experience necessary as City and Islington students will be on hand to offer advice and help.

This event is programmed by City and Islington College, a Tate Exchange Associate.
