Work Not Charity: the Story of Painted Fabrics Ltd.
Come and find out about the social history of the early 20th century through the story of Painted Fabrics Ltd, a Sheffield based 'Work Not Charity’ organisation.
Based at Meadowhead, Painted Fabrics Ltd was an innovative Sheffield project to re-train disabled ex-servicemen at the end of the First World War.
Find out how the project was set up, the extraordinary lives of the women behind it, and discover the beautiful fabrics that the men made.
This talk will include a Powerpoint of images, stories and documents of the period with a chance for questions at the end.
