The People’s Quilt – Bolton’s Past, Present and Future

Thanks to ‘Awards for All’ National Lottery funding, we have been able to start a fantastic new interactive textiles project, ‘The People’s Quilt’ alongside textiles artist Jennifer Gilmour. Exploring Bolton’s heritage with ex machinists from the factories and mills of Bolton’s past, the present through refugees experiences and the potential future with local schoolchildren, the project will combine textiles, images, text, video and audio to create a giant storytelling quilt. Free to all participants.
