Tea & Create 1: Photo-Embroidery

Come join Clapham Park Creative Co-op in this free workshop and learn photo-embroidery creating new artworks out of black and white photographs.

We will be embroidering photographs of the buildings in Clapham Park Estate that have come down as part of the regeneration and the collection will be exhibited together as one piece at our final exhibition. You will also get some supplies to do it at home. Developed by photographer Marcia Chandra and textile artist Sonia Tuttiet (East London Textile Arts).

About Tea & Create_ 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.
