Who are the unsung heroines of Renfrewshire, where can we find them and how are they celebrated or remembered? How do these hidden stories affect our lives and identities today? We’ll begin this workshop with a chance to see the Making Her Mark exhibition and then have fun with crafts to create our own mementos to a Renfrewshire woman from history or from our own lives.

Hidden Stories of Renfrewshire Women, Thursday 24th February, 11am to 1pm, In Person, Paisley Central Library, Free, 16+, Women* Only
