East London Textile Arts

I am Director of East London Textile Arts which provides textile and craft teaching for around 60 people each week. Work is exhibited in regular exhibitions, while cards, booklets and patterned papers made from images created in our sessions are sold in craft shops and fairs.
East London Textile Arts

was set up eight years ago

by local people of different faiths and ethnicities to make textiles reflecting the cultural diversity of the area. It is a small project reliant on its own fundraising and works in partnership with galleries, musuems, schools, arts and local community organisations.
