DUMBARTON’S Maritime Museum has announced six additional textile panel workshops to run in October and November.

The Denny Tank’s workshops will complement the museum’s new exhibition of climate change textile panels created by The Loving Earth global community project. 

Focused on the earth and nature, The Loving Earth Project Textile Panel Workshops will run on Saturday, October 16, Saturday, November 13 and Saturday, November 27 with two sessions each day, 10.30am–12.30pm and 1.30pm–3.30pm.

During the workshops, which suit all ages and abilities, from beginners to expert crafters, participants will receive as much guidance and support as they need to begin their textile project. 

Participants can take their panel home to complete or go back to one of the following workshops and finish their project at the museum. Finished panels can be left to become part of the exhibition at the museum.

Announcing The Loving Earth Project: Textile Panel Workshops, Nicola Scott, exhibition and events officer at the Scottish Maritime Museum, said: “We had such a great response to our first Loving Earth workshops that we are delighted to announce six more.

"As the weather changes, what could be more enjoyable than spending a couple of hours taking inspiration from The Loving Earth exhibition and creating your own panel expressing what you love about Planet Earth and nature.

“The Loving Earth project and workshops are all about celebrating our interaction with nature, collaborating and crafting.”
