The Weaving of Pendle offered Artist Zaneb Khatun, from COMMUNITY ARTS by ZK, the opportunity to take part in a residency programme to work with a community group called Banner Group who are part of Christ Church in Lancashire. The group already used traditional sewing and embroidery crafts techniques but were keen to try out new ways of working as part of a separate project which could add value to their current practice.


Artist Zaneb Khatun delivered a series of workshops to the group, using the cultural landscape of Pendle as a theme for the project. The project had a 'hands on' approach with a strong emphasis on combining traditional arts and crafts techniques with contemporary practice.


Zaneb and the Banner Group worked together to produce something which was “toured” across the local area, bringing people together as custodians for the piece.


Zaneb and the banner group will work collaboratively with a strong emphasis on community cohesion to provide a blended learning experience for all.


 This will take the form of a mixture of:

  • “skill sharing” sessions between Zaneb and the Banner Group

  •  sessions where members from neighbouring community groups are invited in to share knowledge and experiences

  •  open public events to showcase ongoing work and to allow shared experiences between communities, including coffee mornings, food sharing, culture and story sharing.
