Good Practice Guidelines

One of the key outputs of the funded network project will be the Stitching Together Good Practice Guidelines, which provide advice for facilitators of participatory textile making workshops and projects in diverse settings.

The guidelines are currently in progress: we gathered ideas at our first two network events and now have a full draft version. This will be refined in response to feedback from network members, and we aim to publish the final version in the autumn.

In developing the guidelines, we have identified a range of existing sources of advice with relevance to participatory textile making. These sources have informed the content and will also be signposted in the guidelines as ‘further reading’.

In the meantime, we thought it would be useful to provide links to the sources here. They are listed by the intended context – participatory arts, academic research or academic public engagement – but much of the advice is relevant to other contexts, so it may be worth browsing through them all.

If you have any other sources of advice to suggest, we would be very pleased to hear about them. Please get in touch!
