The Fabric of Life project is a young people’s project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund in which the participants have looked at the history of fashion as a form of identity with particular focus on gender and sexuality. Forty five young people from Bradford on Avon, Chippenham, Salisbury and Trowbridge have engaged with the project.
