Workshops

A series of workshops run at Forge Mill Needle  Museum and Your Ideas Youth and Community Project, responding to the rich needle making heritage of Redditch through collecting found objects walking the local landscape, sorting, categorising and stitching inspired by the Museums collection of Victorian Needle display boards, created for world exhibitions, elevating this practical tool to the decorative.
