Case studies

This ever-growing collection of case studies showcases the diversity of contexts in which participatory textile making activities take place. We hope that this resource will be useful for researchers and practitioners interested in using such methods.

If you have run a project involving participatory textile making activities, please consider contributing a case study. There are two templates: a Research Case Study template, for projects which take place within the context of academic research, and a Practice Case Study template, for projects which take place outside this context – such as socially engaged arts practice and public engagement. The templates, along with guidance notes, can be downloaded as a Word document here and sent to

If you would like to check whether your project falls within the network’s remit, are unsure about which template to use, or have any questions, please get in touch.
