We open up the Pankhurst Centre in September for four special days of fun as part of Heritage Open Days!
Join us for a wonderful art workshop on the theme of Mothers and Daughters, an afternoon of suffragette-style rosette-making, and visit our suffragette pop-up shop.
On September 13, artist Helena Tomlin will lead a workshop exploring the mother-daughter relationship, using family photographs to investigate the joys and complexities between generations of women. Participants will use photocopy and paint to produce powerful artworks that can be exhibited at the Centre as part of our Vote 100 celebrations.
And on September 16, seamstress Jeanette Archer will lead a drop-in workshop to create suffragette-style rosettes. This creative workshop will echo the suffragette stitch-ins of the past, where women worked together on crafts that would become props in their protests. Come along to talk rights, ribbons and representation over your rosettes!
We're also opening a special pop-up suffragette shop, inspired by those set up by the original suffragettes more than a century ago.
