Women'sTextile Group



Manchester Jewish Museum Learning Studio



Do you want to join a new group, meet new people and learn new skills? Are you nifty with a needle or can spin a good yarn? Join us for our first Women’s Textile Group session in 2023!

The group is a great place to make new friends and practice your textile craft. Working with different artists and guest speakers, the group works on a variety of creative projects.

In this session we will be working on a beautiful panel exhibition of textiles that respond to Jewish Mancunians experiences of the Sabbath. We will also be talking about the year ahead and what future exciting projects might await! These spaces are very much about collaboration and co-creation, where your ideas and direction help shape what gets made.

Don’t worry if this is your first session, it’s a great time to get a flavour of the projects we work on and meet the group – you’d be most welcome! We are a friendly group open to any self-identifying woman, no sewing experience necessary!


Our Women’s Textile Group is FREE and open to any self-identifying women from any faith or background. We’ll provide refreshments and a friendly, safe and welcoming space.

We kindly ask you to book online if possible, but if you’re unsure how to do it don’t worry – just come along and we’ll book you in on the day!
