Project unpacked

We are creating a textile artwork for permanent display in the new Blackheath Community Library & Reminiscence Space when it reopens later this year. We are working on a design that captures the history of 11 Blackheath Village, and what it has meant to users and residents, as it moves forward into this new phase.

Key images will be fitted into a design that can be constructed out of individually crafted pieces, using knitting, applique, embroidery and other techniques. These will then be brought together to make the complete picture.

Training and support will also be provided, and there will be opportunities to create, whatever your skills and experience. If you'd like to join us, email me: or watch this space for more details.

This project is supported by Age Exchange

Nearly there....

With the end of October deadline looming, we laid out what we have got so far last Thursday.  A lot has been created, and it is looking really good.  But there are still some rather large gaps which we are rushing to finish before Amanda comes in on Thursday to help with the layout and practical things, like attaching the elements to the canvas.  So this will be a short post!
