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

On the Wall

It took a long long time to fix all those pieces in place!  I can't begin to estimate the person hours, but thanks to all the dedicated women in the group the stitching was finally declared finished at 1.10 pm today.  Within a couple of hours the textile was in place on the wall.  (Suzanne took an excellent video of its journey from the Bakehouse along the street to the front of the building.) Tomorrow it will be glazed.
