Exhibition showcasing the results of a collaborative project between the Birmingham based social enterprise Go-Woman! Alliance CIC and the Cadbury Research Library. Inspired by the bindings and decorations found in Middle Eastern manuscripts participants explored traditional paper craft and bookbinding techniques in a series of workshops, developing skills and self confidence, while producing visually stunning artwork.
