Are you bored with poster presentations? Do you want to tell colleagues, patients, and the public about your research in a more engaging and exciting way?

NHS RD NW offered an event hosted by textile artist and creative facilitator, Jana Kennedy, to teach attendees how to tell textile stories. Textiles have been used to communicate for hundreds of years, most notably the Bayeux tapestry depicting the Norman invasion of England in 1066!

Textiles are colourful, tactile, and engaging in a way that plain old posters aren’t. Working with Jana gave attendees the confidence to explore their creativity and tell their stories in a more unique and compelling manner. No sewing skills were needed for this workshop, just lots of enthusiasm and a desire to communicate research.
