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: firstname.lastname@example.org or watch this space for more details.
