The Stitching Together research network brings together researchers, professional textile practitioners, project commissioners and enthusiast textile maker groups to develop improved critical understandings of participatory textile making – making textiles with others – as an emerging methodological approach used in cross-disciplinary research.

The project, which is funded by the UK’s Arts & Humanities Research Council, runs from January 2019 to December 2020. It is led by Dr Emma Shercliff (Arts University Bournemouth) and Dr Amy Twigger Holroyd (Nottingham Trent University). Derby Museums are supporting the project as a non-academic partner. 

Further information, news and resources will be added to the site as the project progresses.
