Creative Tea 2: Photo-Embroidery

Come join Clapham Park Creative Co-op in this free Creative Tea* photo-embroidery workshop, and join your neighbours to get creative or just have a natter. And it’s Halloween so come join us in fancy dress if you dare (we’ll be dressed up)!

*Please note we will not be serving tea for the time being to keep the workshop as risk-free as possible.

We have been working with residents over the past year embroidering photographs of the buildings in Clapham Park Estate. Photo-embroidery is a simple skill to learn for all ages, and is a beautiful and unique way to commemorate a photograph.

Our plan is to have a complete collection of hand-embroidered photographs of all the unique buildings across the Clapham Park estate. We are also collecting facts and anecdotes about each building, and will be exhibiting the collection altogether at an exhibition in Spring 2021.

This project was developed by photographer Marcia Chandra in collaboration with textile artist Sonia Tuttiet (East London Textile Arts) for the Clapham Park Creative Co-op.

About Creative Tea_ Every last Saturday of the month we will be getting together with Clapham Park neighbours (in person or from home) to make something creative together. Each month we will produce a new collaborative ‘artwork’ that tells a story about Clapham Park.

Want to participate but can’t do face to face workshops? We can deliver you a ‘Together At Home’ Art Kit and pick up the finished piece when you’re done! It’s a nice way to still be connected and creative over this unusual period in time. Note that art kits are only available to Clapham Park area neighbours (we can’t walk too far :).
