Join Artist Clare Owens to discuss, play and get creative with textiles and art, using the history of dress as a conversation starter.

Clare Owens has a rich background in teaching A Level Fashion and Textiles and is currently an AA2A Artist at the University of Chester. She does regular workshops with adults and children, including at Storyhouse’s The Nest.

This workshop is suited to people with an interest in fashion, history of fashion and the idea of repurposing. The black and white buildings of Chester will influence the creative elements of the workshop. No sewing skills necessary.

It has been designed for parents/guardians plus 1 or 2 children aged 11+

This workshop is part of CWAC’s Refresh initiative; a cultural recovery programme designed to bring high quality arts and cultural activities back into the city of Chester. Included in Refresh is the Heritage England-funded Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) bid in which culture and creative activity is inspired by the distinctive heritage of the Rows.
