Common Threads is an arts organisation which brings together creativity, historical collections and communities. 

We are a small group of artists, curators and makers who are passionate about history, textiles and their potential to inspire and engage.

Taking inspiration from our rich heritage, we deliver workshops, exhibitions, community activities and creative opportunities supported by historical research.

Common Threads aims to inspire creativity and well-being, promoting the physical, mental and social benefits which can be gained through creative practice.

Our current community workshops, Common Threads: Make & Mend provide creative, supportive environments for people living with mental health problems.
