Braintree Has Heart is a schools outreach project run by Braintree District Museum Trust.

Textile design was at the heart of Braintree Town and its community for over a century. The aim of this project is to teach young children the art of design through the use of colour, pattern and repeats.  This will help develop a number of skills including spatial awareness, logic and hand-eye co-ordination. The Trust also aims for this project to give children an outlet in which to express their creativity and emotions as they work through the ever changing enviroments and periods of great uncertainty due to the pandemic.
