Creative summer school for ages 16-18 years old

We have a really exciting opportunity at the Pankhurst Centre for young people aged 16-18 years old from Greater Manchester to take part in a 3 day creative summer school.

Book your free place by completing the form here 

Dates:   Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th and Friday 12th August 2022 
Times:  10:00am – 4:00pm each day 
Location:   Pankhurst Centre, 60-62 Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9WP

If you are interested in learning more about stop motion animation, textile up-cycling and printmaking then sign up to our new and exciting summer school. 

Each activity will explore the power of campaigning and how activism has shaped the Manchester we live in today. You will learn about the history of the Pankhurst Trust, how a group of people came together in the 1970s to save the historic home of the Pankhurst Family which had become a shell of what it once was. They campaigned, fundraised and re-built the building brick by brick to create a new space for women to meet, support one another and organise. 

Explore this unique history through three days of creativity: 

  • Explore the process of screen printing with artists from Hot Bed Press studios
  • Learn how to make your own stop motion animation with Triple Dot Filmmakers
  • Get creative and up-cycle pre-loved clothes in to a new outfit with the help of Stitched Up

Lunch and refreshments are provided on each day and travel to the Pankhurst Centre will be reimbursed.

Participants are encouraged to attend all 3 days to slowly build towards a final art piece on the final day. 

We are looking for 15 young people to get involved, a really interesting and unique opportunity to work in a space full of Manchester’s history!

To sign up and book your free place now, complete one of our forms here. 

On the form we ask that you tell us about any access requirements you may have so we can better support you to take part. The workshops will take place on the ground floor of the Pankhurst Centre, with regular breaks and a quiet, separate space if needed. 

As catering is provided we need to know of any dietary requirements including any allergies or preferences. 

Places will be allocated on a first come basis. When we have filled all 15 places we will set up a waiting list for those still interested in attending. 

If you have any questions about the workshops please email Charlie Booth on
