Cut Cloth Contemporary Textiles and Feminism Exhibition Launch

Good luck to all our student volunteers and their colleagues exhibiting this Friday at Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2017. Combine your visit with a trip to Cut Cloth Contemporary Textiles and Feminism Exhibition Launch at The Portico Library, the same evening from 6pm.

Cut Cloth examines the shifting relationship between feminism and textiles in the 21st century and their histories in Manchester and beyond. Thanks to People's History MuseumPankhurst Centre and BBC Radio 3's Edwina Wolstencroft for loaning us items from their collections to complement the new artworks, including Hazel Reeves' original maquette for Womanchester's forthcoming Emmeline Pankhurst statue, and African wax fabric samples from ABC textiles.
