The idea

This brand new textile project will run workshops twice a week which will help combat loneliness and isolation, especially working around social prescribing and suicide prevention.

The project will also  empower people to learn new skills, learn about the environmental impact of textile waste, understand the importance of upcycling and, with the sales of the upcycled products, will support the running of the arts centre.
