The Fabric of Society

Free

15 Nov 2018 - 3 Feb 2019 (Past community project)

Overview

The Fabric of Society exhibition has brought together a group of 20 women from different communities across Peterborough in regular textile sessions at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery since August 2018. There they have shared their traditional textiles and techniques, as well as their histories and importance. It has been an enlightening exploration of immigration and integration in our community.

Nationalities represented in the project include Lithuania, Portugal, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, England and Angola. The group also took the time to eat together during their meet-ups, with each member bringing traditional foods from their communities.

As the exhibition continues the display will build and change and the gallery will act as a work space. Members of the public will be invited to take part in sewing sessions with the group.
