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

Taking inspiration from our rich heritage, Common Threads delivers workshops, exhibitions, community activities and creative opportunities.

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

Common Threads is run by a small group of artists, curators, makers and practitioners experienced in project management, facilitation and the support of vulnerable learners.  We are passionate about history, textiles and their potential to inspire and engage.
