Garland making - rickshaw workshop

Join lead artist Daya Bhatti in a garland-making workshop for our beautiful new rickshaw.

Decorate your very own piece of a garland, adding your unique touch to a collaborative masterpiece that will adorn the magnificent rickshaw, reflecting on the themes of love/care, nostalgia, diverse community and British Asian identity.

Suitable for adults and children aged 10 and above. We are holding sessions on Tuesday 24 October and Thursday 2 November, 2-3.30pm.

The rickshaw forms part of the programme for the Museum’s new South Asia Gallery. The decorative artwork is inspired by conversations about shared themes of love, joy and British Asian identity. Once fully decorated this rickshaw will start a journey across Greater Manchester, taking up residence at venues across the region.
