Leeds Textiles workshop – Collage display

The members worked in pairs to create a collage of their own design. This was the first time members in the textiles workshop have worked together to produce project work. 

Working collaboratively has provided members with more opportunity to interact with each other and has helped to develop their compromise and negotiation skills, their skill in communication as well as ability at decision making and problem solving. 

Many members had identified being able to work as a team as their individual project goal, much progress has been made towards these goals and the workshop is keen to continue developing their abilities to work as a team!

Members were happy and proud to create an attractive display in the green room to showcase all their hard work!

On completion of this project members are much more confident talking to each other, are developing friendships with others within the workshop, getting to know each other better and finding it easier to initiate conversation between themselves without staff support.
