Phase 1 – Bassetlaw Mind workshops
We recently completed a series of textile workshops with our co-researchers at MIND in Worksop. Workshops ran for six weeks, followed by a feedback and reflection session in week seven. Facilitators initially supported the group in the making of textile circuits and soft switches, later incorporated into adapted garments, and a group circuit created by joining each individual’s made textile piece. One to one discussions developed into co-designed ideas, and the process of making became a shared activity as the weeks progressed.
We value the relationships made with each individual during our seven weeks at MIND, and are hoping to continue the involvement of these co-researchers, as we move into the next phases of the project.
