Anyone who wishes to participate and who identifies as a woman is welcome to attend these workshops which will be held in the Methodist Central Hall every Thursday 11am-12pm in the run up to International Women's Day.
The workshop will be run by Sophia Gardiner, Migrant Echoes' project worker and visual artist.
