Create a patchwork mosaic for our rickshaw

Join artist Daya Bhatti to help us decorate our dazzling new rickshaw with a colourful patchwork mosaic.

Embrace the vibrant patchwork traditions of South Asia as you contribute to adornments for the top hood and middle panel of the rickshaw using recycled fabrics and materials.

Get creative and let your imagination run wild as you decorate a piece of the patchwork canvas with imagery inspired by the rich themes of the rickshaw. Learn how you can upcycle materials, creating beautiful artwork from old treasures.

Suitable for Adults and Children aged 10 and above.


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.
